The race for the 11 Walworth County board seats is becoming somewhat clearer.

At least six Walworth County supervisors will vacate their posts come April.

Supervisors Robert Arnold of Sugar Creek, Margaret Downing of Geneva Township, Allen Morrison of Sharon, Allan Polyock of Zenda, Joyce Ketchpaw of East Troy and Art Lein of Whitewater filed non-candidacy papers.

Each lives in a district with fellow incumbents following the board's downsizing and redistricting.

Arnold and Lein would have been in District 3 with supervisors Ann Lohrmann and Sandra Wagie-Troemel.

Downing would have been in District 7 with Supervisor David Weber.

Morrison was in District 9 with Supervisor Jim Van Dreser.

Polyock had Supervisors Randy Hawkins and Pauline Parker in his would-be District 10.

Ketchpaw lives in the new District 1 with supervisors Stan Muzatko and Rick Stacey.

Ketchpaw survived an October recall against Jim Stemper, of East Troy, by garnering nearly 59 percent of the vote.

Morrison, by far, has the most experience, having been elected in 1980. He was board chair from 1996-2002.

Arnold was elected in 1996, Polyock in 2000, Ketchpaw in 2002 and Downing and Lein in 2004.

Incumbents and anyone else interested in running have until Jan. 2 to turn in nomination papers.
