No primary: Four candidates in Plover’s Ward 2 go straight to April ballot

Metro Wire Staff

Trustees in Plover on Thursday decided against holding a primary election on Feb. 21.

During the board’s 15-minute meeting on Jan. 5, trustees considered approving a resolution authorizing a primary election for Ward 2. The village does not have an ordinance allowing for an automatic primary election, so it needs to be considered by the board anytime three or more candidates are seeking the same elected position.

The denial means that all four of the candidates vying for the seat currently held by Gary Wolf will be placed on the April ballot. Wolf is not running for the position in April but is campaigning for village president.

Al Haga, Darcy Grabski, Sara Luchini, and Tim Cisewski have all filed candidacy paperwork for the Ward 2 seat.
