Trustees Appoint Genz to Fill Empty Village Board Seat
Carl Genz was appointed to fill an open seat on the Greendale Village Board on Tuesday, April 19. The final vote was 4 to 2 with Sally Chadwick and Rich Busalacchi voting no. Ron Barbian, Al Sikorski, Donna Ouellette and Jim Birmingham voted in favor of Genz.
Bill Kewan and Genz were both defeated by Busalacchi in separate races in the April 5 election leaving the seat formerly occupied by Kewan open.
In the race for a three-year seat on Greendale’s Village Board earlier this month, Genz finished third with 2,316 votes. Busalacchi also defeated incumbent Bill Kewan in a race for the one-year term. Busalacchi took in 2,925 votes to Kewan’s 2,160.
Busalacchi chose to fill the three-year seat, allowing Genz to be appointed to fill the remainder of the one-year seat. Genz will be up for re-election in April of 2017.
