No candidates for council seat
Incumbent not seeking re-election
There are no registered write-in candidates for the city of Waupaca’s 1st Aldermanic District seat.
Jillian Petersen currently holds the position on the common council and is not seeking re-election on April 4.
Deputy City Clerk Sandy Stiebs said no one has officially filed as a write-in candidate for the position.
Since there are no certified candidates on the ballot, all legitimate write-ins on the ballot will be counted on April 4, whether they are registered write-in candidates or not, she said.
The deadline to file nomination papers to be on the ballot this spring was Jan. 3.
Petersen, who is serving her second term on the council, filed her Notification of Non-candidacy on Dec. 21.
Incumbents not planning to seek re-election file that notification.
Of the five Waupaca Common Council members up for re-election on April 4, Petersen is the only incumbent not seeking another term.
Seeking re-election this spring are incumbents Paul Hagen in the 2nd Aldermanic District, Scott Purchatzke in the 3rd Aldermanic District, Charles Whitman in the 4th Aldermanic District and Steve Hackett in the 5th Aldermanic District.
All are running unopposed for another two-year term on the council.
This April will mark 21 years of service on the council for Hagen.
Purchatzke is seeking his sixth term on the council, and Whitman is running for a fifth term on the council.
Hackett is seeking his eighth term on the common council.
