Two challengers have emerged for Oak Creek Alderman Dan Jakubczyk, which would force a primary to whittle the field to two.
Shawn Vollmer and Steven Kurkowski have taken out papers to run for Jakubczyk's 1st District seat, according to the city clerk's office. If all of the necessary paperwork is filed by Jan. 2, a primary will be held Feb. 19.
The top two vote-getters in the primary would be on the ballot in the April 2 general election.
The 1st District encompasses the city's northeast side (See a map of the districts here). Jakubczyk was first elected in 2009 and re-elected in 2011 with 56 percent of the vote.
No challengers have yet emerged for two other incumbent alderman, Jim Ruetz and Ken Gehl, running in the April election.
Aldermen are elected to two-year terms at an annual salary of $7,200; the council president makes $8,400.
