Primary Election:

Six candidates are vying for three seats on the School District of Elmbrook’s Board of Education. Each Board member represents the entire District; therefore all residents can select one candidate for each seat.

The District will hold an Area III primary election on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 with the top two vote-getters joining the Area I and At-Large candidates in the spring election on Tuesday, April 4, 2017.

Nomination Signature Challenge Deadline
Friday, January 6, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. was the deadline for filing challenges for any candidate nomination signatures.  No requests for review were made by this deadline, so the District will be moving forward with the primary election on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, for the Area III seat, and the spring election on Tuesday, April 4, 2017, for the Area I, Area III and the At-Large seats.  The Area III seat for the April 4 election will include the two top vote-getters from the February 21 primary.

Three Board of Education Seats up for Election on April 4, 2017 

Area I Seat


This seat is currently vacant (Area I is roughly the northeast quadrant of the District).  The seat is up for election to a full three-year term in 2017.  Jon J. Dzurak and Allison Malnar have filed campaign registration statements, sufficient nomination signatures and declarations of candidacy, thereby completing the process of having their names placed on the April ballot.  Nomination signatures were requested starting December 1, 2016.

Area III Seat

Tom Gehl is the incumbent for the Area III seat (Area III is roughly the southwest quadrant of the District) that is up for election to a full three-year term in 2017 and has filed a notice of noncandidacy advising the community that he will not be seeking reelection to this seat.  Jimmy Schulgit, Jian Sun and Leanne Wied have filed campaign registration statements, sufficient nomination signatures and declarations of candidacy, so their names will be placed on the February 21 primary ballot.  All three may function as candidates for this seat.  Nomination signatures were requested starting December 1, 2016.

With three candidates for the Area III seat, a primary will be held on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, for the Area III seat only, to reduce the number to two candidates for the April 4, 2017 election.

At-Large Seat

Kathryn Wilson is the incumbent for the At-Large seat that is up for election to a full three-year term in 2017.  Kathryn Wilson has filed a campaign registration statement, a declaration of candidacy and sufficient nomination signatures, thereby completing the necessary steps to have her name placed on the April ballot.  Kathryn Wilson may function as a candidate for this seat.  Nomination signatures were requested starting December 1, 2016.
