Spring 2019 Election Day

1

April 2 features elections for local city councils, mayors, a state supreme court justice, school board reps, and a Neenah school referendum.

Polls open at 7:00 A.M. on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 for an election that includes several key votes impacting the Oshkosh area and the state of Wisconsin.

Oshkosh Mayor: The current Mayor Steve Cummings faces off against current Deputy Mayor Lori Palmeri. The OI interviewed both candidates – take a look:
STEVE CUMMINGS INTERVIEW
LORI PALMERI INTERVIEW

Oshkosh Common Council: Three seats are up for election, with five challengers on the ballot. Three incumbents are seeking re-election, and face a challenge from a former councilor and a political newcomer. The OI interviewed the council candidates – take a look:
DEB ALLISON-AASBY INTERVIEW
JAKE KRAUSE INTERVIEW
TOM PECH, JR. INTERVIEW
BOB POESCHL INTERVIEW
– (Robert Wilcox did not respond)

Other Key Votes:

– Wisconsin State Supreme Court: Technically a non-partisan position, the race (and the court) is hyper partisan and the candidates – both with strong credentials – offer pretty stark differences. Judge Brian Hagedorn was first appointed to his post on the Wisconsin Court of Appeals by then-Governor Scott Walker. Judge Lisa Neubauer serves as Chief Judge of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, appointed by the state’s Supreme Court in 2015 and again in 2018.

– Neenah Joint School District Referendum: The District is seeking $129,580,000 for major school facilities improvement projects, including a new (replacement) middle school, safety and accessibility improvements, and other updates.

Town of Neenah Board of Supervisors: Voters can vote for two of the following candidates: Brandon Nielsen; Tom Wilde; Elizabeth M. Duquaine; Brooke Cardoza

– Town of Oshkosh Board of Supervisors: Voters can vote for two of the following candidates: Jason Wolfgram; Matt Merten; William Demler
