Just two contested seats in county board races

Mike Heine reports in Sunday's edition of the Week that it should be smooth sailing for most incumbents of the Walworth County Board as they prepare for the April election.

There are 25 seats and 23 incumbents run unopposed for reelection.

Only incumbent Jerry Waelti, 115 Spring Drive, Delavan, faces competition. Daniel Kilkenny, N3616 Elm Ridge Road, Delavan, also seeks the District 18 post, which covers the western half of Delavan and parts of the town of Darien.

Waelti was elected in 2004 and serves on the county's children with disabilities educational board and the county's finance committee.

Kilkenny, who is a Delavan attorney, serves on the Darien town board.
District 10 Supervisor Betty Felten, who represents parts of western Elkhorn and the southeast corner of Sugar Creek Township, filed non-candidacy papers on Dec. 6. The three-term supervisor said she is moving to another district.

Kathy Ingersoll, 303 Randall Place, Elkhorn, Bill Sigmund, 512 W. Court St., Elkhorn, and Paul R. Nelson, W6123 Hazel Ridge Road, Elkhorn, compete for the post.

Ingersoll is a retired nurse who lived in Walworth County for about 55 years.
Sigmund lived all 74 years of his life in Walworth County. He retired as Lakeland Hospital's maintenance man in 1994.
Neither has held an elected position.

Sigmund could not be reached for comment before press time.
A primary election for the District 10 seat will be held Tuesday, February 21.
