Two of the three incumbents whose terms are up for reelection in 2020 have decided not to seek another term on the Green Lake City Council.

   However, Green Lake residents will have plenty of individuals to choose from as new potential candidates step forward.

   District 1 Ald. Jon Smick recently submitted his non-candidacy papers.

   He, along with District 3 Ald. Dusty Walker, will not run for reelection.

   However, incumbent Mayor Jon McConnell has taken papers out, intending to run again for reelection but has not submitted them yet to officially declare his candidacy.

   He, along with other individuals, have until Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 5 p.m. to submit their candidacy papers.

   Though two of the three incumbents are not seeking another term, other individuals in the Green Lake community have step forward to take their place.

   According to City Clerk/ Treasurer Barb Dugenske, several new potential candidates have emerged.

   She explained for the District 1 alderman position, Chris Foos, 466 Hill St., took out papers as well as Darin Green, 584 Ray St.

   Chris Seno, 375 S. Lawson Dr., and Danielle Reysen, 381 Palmer Ave., took out papers for District 3.

   Dugenske also noted Raymond Radis, 566 Wilson St., is still in the running for mayor after submitting his papers.

   Meanwhile, two of the three incumbents for the Green Lake School Board have not yet announced whether they intend to run again.

   The three members whose terms are up in 2020 are Andy Gryske, Loni Meiborg and Ron Triemstra.

   Triemstra already announced almost a month ago that he is not going to run for reelection after serving nine years on the School Board.

   Incumbents have until Friday at 5 p.m. to declare non-candidacy and until Tuesday, Jan 7 to declare candidacy.

   No other candidates have stepped forward for the School Board election.
