Feldner Sheboygan County voters ensured that the county will have its second female on the Circuit Court bench Tuesday.

Catherine Delahunt and Rebecca Persick emerged from a three-candidate field for the Sheboygan County Circuit Court Branch IV seat. They will face off in the April 7 general election to succeed retiring Judge Terence Bourke.

Delahunt, judge of the Kohler/Sheboygan Municipal Court, finished first in the balloting with 2,842 votes in the unofficial tally. That was just 43 votes ahead of Persick, currently the Sheboygan County court commissioner.

Plymouth Municipal Court Judge Matthew Mooney was eliminated in the primary, getting 1,293 votes.

Branch III Judge Angela Sutkiewicz was appointed the county’s first female circuit court judge in 2010 by then-Gov. Jim Doyle. She won election to a full term in 2011, narrowly defeating Delahunt.

The winner in April will serve a six-year term on the bench.

Voters in Sheboygan County followed the district wide trend in the Republican primary for the 20th State Senate District.

State Rep. Duey Stroebel finished first and Ozaukee County Board Chairman Lee Schlenvogt second in the primary to fill the seat vacated when Glenn Grothman was elected to Congress last fall.

The Republican primary eliminated Tiffany Koehler from the race. The district includes the towns of Greenbush, Lyndon, Mitchell, Russell and Scott and the villages of Cascade and Waldo in Sheboygan County.

In the town of Wilson, a field of five candidates for two positions on the Town Board was trimmed to four with contender Michael Bergin eliminated after finishing last with 111 votes.

The candidates in the April election and their vote totals Tuesday are John Ehmann, 294; Tom Stoelb, 261; Brian Hoffmann, 192; and Thomas Kultgen, 166.

Incumbent Village President Bob McDermott and Trustee Matthew Brockmeier will be on the April ballot for the position of Random Lake village president.

Brockmeier finished one vote ahead of McDermott – 104 to 103 – while Trustee Robert Siebenaler was third with 64 votes and will not advance to the April election.

One former alderman advanced in the Sheboygan Falls City Council District 2, while another former alderman was the odd man out in the primary voting.

The seat is vacant as incumbent Dan Krueger is not seeking re-election. Peter Weber, who lost a bid for the council last year, finished first in the primary with 86 votes.

Moving on to the April election with Weber is former alderman Thomas McCue, who received 66 votes. Former alderman John Raml got only 37 votes and will not advance.
