After a brief break from elections, it's time to start thinking about 2013.
Muskego will have their primary on Feb. 19 if enough candidates emerge for the four district seats on the Common Council, which means at least three candidates per district.
District 2 will need a new alderman as Kert Harenda was redistricted out, but rules allowed him to finish his term. Rob Glazier currently is the District 4 alderman, having been appointed after Keith Werner's resignation this past spring. Glazier has not indicated yet if he will decide to throw his hat in the ring for the 2013 - 15 term.
Neome Schaumberg, who has been the District 6 Alderman since 2009, told Muskego Patch that she was going to retire at the end of her term in April, leaving the seat open. Schaumberg has run unopposed in both of her terms, and was previously a member of the Plan Commission.
Noah Fiedler also resigned from his District 7 post at the end of March 2012, with former alderman Eileen Madden being appointed. She told Muskego Patch that she would be filing papers to run again in 2013.
Interested in throwing your hat into the ring? The first day to circulate nomination papers is Dec. 1, 2012 and the final day for filing nomination papers is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013, in the office of the City Clerk-Treasurer at Muskego City Hall. Aldermanic terms are all two years.
