Jakubczyk, Kurkowski Move On In Election
Challenger Shawn Vollmer missed second place by nine votes and was eliminated in Tuesday's primary.
Incumbent Alderman Dan Jakubczyk was the top vote-getter in Tuesday's Oak Creek Common Council primary, with challenger Steven Kurkowski barely edging Shawn Vollmer to also advance to the April general election.
Jakubczyk got 42 percent of the vote (155 votes), according to unofficial election results. Kurkowski got 30 percent (110), while Vollmer pulled 28 percent (101).
Jakubcyzk, the 1st District alderman since 2009, will face Kurkowski in the April 2 election.
Election results remain unoffficial until certified by the Board of Canvassers.
