W-F School Board member running for re-election
By Angie Landsverk
Jim Stuebs is among the Weyauwega-Fremont School Board members up for re-election this spring who are running unopposed.
He holds the towns of Wolf River and Bloomfield seat and is seeking his third term on the board.
Stuebs said there are two main reasons why he is running for re-election.
One of them is “to be there for Gunner for his diploma and his graduation,” he said.
His son, Gunner, is a senior at W-F High School, and Stuebs hopes to be the school board’s clerk after the April 5 election, so he will be able to sign his son’s diploma.
Stuebs was the clerk when his daughter, Cheyenne, graduated from W-F High School in 2014 and said “it was an awesome feeling” to sign her diploma.
The other reason he is seeking another term on the board is to “follow through with what we started with the school,” he said.
The high school was built in 1969 and needs to be updated, Stuebs said.
“We’ve been talking over a year,” he said of the district’s discussion about its facilities.
Stuebs is a 1975 graduate of W-F High School.
He returned to the district in 1997, after living in the Fox Cities and in New London.
Stuebs went to Fox Valley Technical College and has been an electrician for about 25 years.
He is currently an electricican at Appleton Coded.
Stuebs has six children and one grandchild, with a second grandchild due in May.
In addition to Stuebs, Debi Bartel and Doug Ehrenberg are seeking re-election this spring.
Bartel holds the towns of Lind, Saxeville and Waupaca seat on the board and is seeking her second term.
Ehrenberg, the current board president, holds the village of Fremont seat and is seeking his third term on the board.
