With just a week to go before the spring election slate is determined, city and town of Port Washington voters know there will be at least one new member of their governing bodies.

In the city, 5th District Ald. Kevin Rudser was the only candidate to submit noncandidacy papers by the Dec. 23 deadline, City Administrator Mark Grams said Tuesday.

Jonathan Pleitner, 1890 Aster St., has filed nomination papers for Rudser’s seat, he said.

None of the other incumbents up for election — 1st District Ald. Mike Ehrlich, 3rd District Ald. Bill Driscoll and 7th District Ald. Dan Becker — filed noncandidacy forms. 

City Clerk Susan Westerbeke said last week a number of people have inquired about nomination papers.

But only Becker has returned his nomination papers, Grams said.

In the Town of Port, Supr. Jim Rychtik is not seeking re-election. 

His seat, as well as those held by Supr. Mike Didier, Chairman Jim Melichar and Treasurer Mary Sampont, are all up for election in spring.

Three seats on the Port Washington-Saukville School Board will also be on the ballot.

They include the City of Port Washington post currently held by Brian McCutcheon, Village of Saukville seat held by Sara McCutcheon and Town of Port seat held by Marchell Longstaff.

The city and town positions are for two-year terms, while the School Board seats are for three-year terms.

Nomination papers for the city and town seats are due at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3.

School Board candidates must file a registration statement and declaration of candidacy by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3.

 If any incumbent fails to file noncandidacy forms and does not submit nomination papers, the deadline will be extended by 72 hours.

The general election will be held on Tuesday, April 4.

If more than two candidates seek any one office, a primary election will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 21.
