Races develop for spring elections
Local elections often are non-eventful, but this year's April 3 ballot will include a number of interesting races. Filings closed on Tuesday, Jan. 3, at 5 p.m.
In the city of New Richmond, incumbent Mayor Fred Horne faces a challenge from former mayor David Schnitzler. Horne has been the city's top elected official for two years, and served as an alderman for 17 years. Schnitzler previously served as mayor for 14 years.
