In last week’s Glendo election, all three incumbents won back their seats.
Susan Juschka was re-elected as Glendo’s mayor in last week’s elections. Juschka had 60 votes. Fellow candidates Dorothy Williams had 35 votes, with one write-in vote for Keith Micke and one for Kenneth Russel Burley II. Juschka has been involved in Glendo politics since 2000.
Juschka said her main goal for next term is attaining funding for street repairs, in addition to attracting businesses for the new business park.
Juschka is currently working with the Glendo Fire Department after an $11,575 cut was proposed for next year’s fire department budget.
Juschka said the dip in funds isn’t a cut, “it’s reallocating state funds where they were supposed to go originally - to the town.” Genelle Petsch won a second term on the town council with 64 votes. Petsch said throughout her first term she took classes offered by the Wyoming Municipalities Association which taught her “how to govern and what governing is about.” She said she’d like to take that knowledge and apply it in her second term.
Doug Foster won a town council seat with 53 votes, while fellow candidates Wanda Lorenz had 14 votes and William Neuharth had 28 votes and Cindy Noyce had 33 votes.
