Village of Saukville voters will have a choice of two trustees vying to replace longtime Village President Barb Dickmann, who is retiring from village office after more than 20 years.

Trevor Seitz and Andy Hebein are facing off to replace Dickmann.

Hebein was first elected to the Village Board in 2019 and is chairman of the Public Safety Committee and Board of Zoning Appeals. He also is a member of the Finance Committee, Mid-Moraine Legislative Committee and Public Works Committee.

Seitz was first elected to the board in 2018. He is chairman of the Cemetery Commission and Public Works Committee, and also serves on the Finance Committee and Public Safety Committee.

This is Seitz’s second try for village president. He challenged Dickmann for president in April 2021, when she garnered 320 votes, or 53.78%, to his 272, or 45.7%.

In August, Seitz and Trustee Scott Fischer criticized Dickmann and Village Administrator Dawn Wagner, saying they withhold information from trustees, especially in regards to new development.

In an email to Dickmann, Wagner and trustees, Seitz said he was “truly disgusted and disappointed with the village president and village administrator.”

Dickmann and Wagner disputed Seitz’s characterization, saying they release information when appropriate.

Dickmann, 75, has served 10 terms as village president, making her the longest-serving chief elected officer in the village’s history.

She also served as a trustee for four years before and as an appointed member on the Library Board for three years prior to being elected trustee.

In other village races, newcomers William Rudolph and Jesse Duckart are running to fill the seats left vacant by Richard Belling and Pete Janus, who opted to not run for re-election.

In the Town of Saukville, Town Chairman Kevin Kimmes and Supr. Curt Rutkowski are running unopposed. Newcomer Amy Cottrell is running to replace Mike Denzien, who is not running for re-election.
