Klemme Gambrell wins School Boad race

by Emmitt B. Feldner of The Review staff

Voters in the Plymouth School District chose a former School Board member to fill the vacant area A seat Tuesday.

Jamie Klemme Gambrell was the winner in the only contested race in Plymouth in Tuesday’s spring general election.

Gambrell, who had previously served 14 months on the board before moving out of the area in 2011, finished ahead of Camisha Miller in the race for the open seat. The vacancy was created by the death last December of former School Board President Mark Rhyan.

According to unofficial results, Gambrell got 828 votes to 281 for Miller.

School Board member Sally Isely was unopposed and won reelection to the area B seat.

Elsewhere in the county, voters in the city of Sheboygan Falls returned all three incumbents in contested races – Mayor Randy Meyer over challenger Dan Krueger and Alderpersons Randy Messner (2nd District) over Peter Weber and Dawn Beimel (3rd District) over Robert Spatz.
