Meet the Morgan town chair candidates


Megan Oswald, Times Herald Correspondent

Greetings, Morgan! The April 2 general election is quickly approaching. Last week’s column introduced the three candidates for Morgan town supervisor. This week, the two candidates for town chairperson will be introduced.

Charlene Borghese is challenging incumbent Fran Wranosky for the town chairperson position. You may recognize her name because Borghese previously served as Morgan’s town clerk for seven years and was Morgan’s only Wisconsin certified municipal clerk to date. She also has 32 years professional experience in the Chicago marketing industry. If elected as town chairperson, Borghese would strive for open-minded decision-making while supporting values important to town residents. In particular, Borghese would prioritize a methodical budget planning process, as well as maintaining and improving town roads.

Incumbent Fran Wranosky has served the town as both the chairperson and a supervisor for several years. He is proud to be a lifelong Morgan resident and is dedicated to keeping Morgan a good place to live and raise a family. If re-elected, Wranosky would prioritize continuing to use fiscally responsible town budget policies. Another priority would be ensuring that Morgan is a secure place for residents by maintaining open lines of communication between the town board and residents. Wranosky would be available at any time to constituents, and he welcomes discussing residents’ concerns and hearing opinions on all issues that affect the town and its residents.

This Tuesday, the town hall will be open for voting from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. In addition to the town board positions, Wisconsin Supreme Court justice, Court of Appeals judge and school board races will also be on the ballot. Thank you in advance to all of the poll workers who ensure that elections run smoothly for voters.

The town’s annual meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. April 16. All residents are welcome to attend. Rentals of the new town hall have been steadily increasing. If you are thinking of renting the hall for an event, make sure to check the schedule for availability. The hall schedule can be viewed on the town website:
