STEVENS POINT, WI (WSAU) - Stevens Point voters kept one incumbent, retired another, and have yet another incumbent waiting the find out if he won.
John Moe was re-elected as the City Clerk, and is appreciative of receiving a third term. “I’ll continue to work hard and provide the quality of services that I think they expect and deserve, and I’ll continue to make my office as accessible to them as possible and also keep an eye on the fiscal impact as well.”
The City Comptroller-Treasurer John Schlice is retiring. His longtime assistant Carrie Freeberg was defeated by Corey Laddick. You may remember Laddick from his previous campaign for State Assembly. He was one of the seven Democrats defeated by Katrina Shankland in the primary.
Long time City Attorney Louis Molepske Sr. will have to wait to find out if he keeps his job. Alderman and challenger Andrew Logan Beveridge appears to have won by 42 votes, but Moe says there are still absentee ballots that might come in. “The City of Stevens Point has 87 absentee ballots that are currently out there, and with some election law changes from last year, they have the opportunity if they have mailed them in, and they are postmarked by today (Tuesday), and they are received by my office by the end of business on Friday, they will be counted.”
Beveridge is another Democrat that lost to Shankland in the Assembly primary last fall.
We won’t know how many of the 87 absentee ballots come back until late Friday or Monday.
