There will be no local primary races in February, but Saukville voters will have choices on the Tuesday, April 7, ballot for both the Village Board and Ozaukee County Board.

Four candidates will vie for three open seats on the Village Board.

Incumbents Scott Fischer, Jim Nowlen and Trevor Seitz will be joined on the ballot by Mike Adams.

Adams is listed on the village website as a member of the village’s Community Development and Industrial Review committee.

All three incumbents were elected in April 2018, Nowlen and Seitz for the first time. Fischer was first elected in 2014.

In the county’s Fifth District, village Plan Commission member and former administrator Chris Lear will oppose incumbent Supr. Don Clark.

Clark was first appointed to the County Board in 2015 and re-elected in 2016 and 2018. He serves on the county Health and Human Services Committee, as well as on the village’s Board of Zoning Appeals. 

Lear was village administrator for Saukville for 10 years and also served as the clerk for the Town of Saukville, administrator in Germantown and village manager in River Hills. 

The Fifth District includes most of the west side of Saukville, roughly between Highway W and Orchard Lane and from Cedar Sauk Road north to Cold Springs Road.

Two other Ozaukee County supervisors who represent the Saukville area are unopposed in bids for new terms. They are Third District Supr. Barbara Jobs, who represents most of the Town of Saukville, and Fourth District Supr. and County Board Chairman Lee Schlenvogt, who represents the eastern side of Saukville.

There are no open seats on the Saukville Town Board.

In the Village of Newburg, there are four  candidates for three open trustee seats. They are incumbent Lynn Burkard and newcomers Phyllis Damrow, Mike Enright and Brooke Stangel.

Two of the three seats are currently held by Sandy Stockhausen and Bill Sackett, both of whom filed notices of non-candidacy and will not be on the ballot.

In the Northern Ozaukee School District, School Board President Brent Neis is running unopposed as the Town of Saukville representative.
