School boards in the northwoods were also shaken up in yesterday’s election.
The Merrill board had 7 candidates vying for 4 seats. Kevin Blake, Jeff Hetfeld and Eric Geiss will all be newcomers to the board. Incumbent Linda Yingling edged out Loretta Baughan for the final spot.
In Rhinelander challenger Duane Frey received the most votes. He’ll be joined on the board by a pair in incumbents in Merlin Van Buren and Mike Roberts.
Finally in Tomahawk, we await finale confirmation of the write-in candidates for two seats. Kay Kissinger-Wolf won her race, unopposed.
