The Stevens Point City Clerk has scheduled a time to draw lots for placement on the spring ballot.
The drawing, which is required by state law, will decide the order by which candidates’ names appear on primary and general election ballots. It is similar to publicly drawing names from a hat.
The drawing will be Monday, Jan. 10, at 10 a.m. at the city clerk’s office. Candidates and the public are invited to attend.
District 1 incumbent Marc Christianson, who was appointed last April to fill the remainder of Councilwoman Tori Jenning’s two-year term, will seek a full term in the spring. He is being challenged by Gracia Day and Stephen Klein.
In District 6, retired Stevens Point police officer Ron Carlson is running unopposed. Unless someone mounts a successful write-in campaign for the seat, Carlson will succeed Alderman Jeremy Slowinski, who will not seek another term.
Other contested races follow:
David Shorr (I)
Mykeerah Zarazua (I)
Thomas Leek (I)
Keely Fishler (I)
The spring primary will be held on Feb. 15, followed by the general election on April 5. To register to vote go to myvote.wi.gov/en-us.
