Kaufert wins election as Neenah mayor; Milwaukee County board pay cut referendum passes easily

Tuesday’s spring election saw the passage of multiple school district referendums, approval of a measure to cut Milwaukee County Board’s pay and the election of state Rep. Dean Kaufert as mayor of Neenah.

Kaufert has said he wouldn’t run for re-election to his Assembly seat if he won his mayoral bid. He defeated incumbent Neenah Mayor George Scherck with 58 percent of the vote.

In Milwaukee County, the referendum to cut board supervisors’ pay in half and eliminate future health and pension benefits passed with 71 percent of the vote. The cut will take effect in 2016.

In other election results, Waukesha Mayor Jeff Scrima lost his position to attorney Shawn Reilly, who bested the one-term mayor by more than 2,000 votes, while Wisconsin Rapids Mayor Zach Vruwink held on to his seat -- defeating former Mayor Mary Jo Carson -- despite a last-minute incident in which Vruwink violated state election laws by taking a picture of his ballot.

In the only contested county executive race, incumbent Manitowoc County Executive Bob Ziegelbauer, a former state Assemblyman, defeated coroner Curtis Green to capture his third term in office.

And among the largest of the 36 school district referendums under consideration, voters approved increased school spending in Green Bay ($20 million), Kettle Moraine ($49.6 million), La Crosse ($20.9 million), Oshkosh ($27.6 million) and Sauk Prairie ($34.6 million). Voters in the Prescott School District approved two of three referendums (it denied the second question to raise revenue limits by $4.26 million to build an auditorium) and those in West Salem split on the two questions, approving a measure to pay for security costs at an elementary school but denying $32 million for a new middle school.

Sheboygan Falls voted down its two school district referendums totaling $30.2 million, while a referendum for $30 million in additional funding for the Wisconsin Dells School District failed by a handful of votes, according to unofficial results.
