There will be races in the April 1 spring election in both West Allis and Greenfield for municipal and school board posts.
A primary will be held Feb. 18 for the six candidates running for a vacancy in the West Allis 5th Aldermanic District resulting from the retirement of longtime alderman James Sengstock.
Filing for that seat as of Tuesday's 5 p.m. deadline were Roy Beaudry, 2082 S. 104th St.; Jim Blask, 2045 S. 104th St.; Diane Brandt, 2936 S. 93rd St.; Wayne Clark, 12112 W. Holt Ave.; Kevin Haass, 3420 S. 122nd St.; and Gerald Matter, 11426 W. Montana Ave.
The primary will narrow the field to two. The winner will serve the remaining two years of Sengstock's term.
On the school side, four candidates will seek three seats on the West Allis-West Milwaukee School Board. Three are incumbents Dan Bailey, 2975 S. 94th St.; Kristi Bonaparte, 2124 S. 59th St.; and Gail Radonski, 7822 W. Manitoba St., all from West Allis, and a fourth candidate, Diane Narlock, 1034 S. 89th St., West Allis.
Terms are three years.
Both incumbents on the Greenfield Common Council will face competition and a primary election will be held in District 2.
In that district, Alderman Tom Pietrowski, 4801 S. 94th St., will run along with Bruce Bailey (current Greenfield School Board president whose School Board term is up in April), 4281 S. 81st St., and Jim Palmar, 5001 S. 68th St.
One will be eliminated in the primary.
Filing for the District 1 aldermanic seat were incumbent Linda Lubotsky, 4801 W. Howard Ave., and Terry Bartz, 4910 W. Midland Drive.
Terms are for three years.
Longtime Greenfield municipal judge Thomas Wilkoski will run unopposed for another four-year term.
The Greenfield School Board will have two openings. The three candidates running for them are incumbent Pam Sierzchulski, 7935 W. Cold Spring Road; Tom Frohna, 4120 W. Upham Ave.; and Greenfield High School student David Pettersen, 4401 W. Cold Spring Road.
Terms are three years.
Whitnall School Board filings were not completed by the NOW deadline because the district extended the filing deadline to 5 p.m. Wednesday. The schools were closed Tuesday, the normal filing deadline, due to the extreme cold so the deadline was extended.
