Newcomer Dan Newell will challenge Suring Village President Jay Tousey in the April 4 general election to determine who leads the village for the next two years.
Voters in the Feb. 21 primary selected Tousey and Newell to advance to the general election, leaving Jeff Whiting, a former village president, out of the running.
According to unofficial results, Tousey finished with 61 votes in the primary, followed by Newell with 33 votes and Whiting with 12 votes.
Tousey, who as been village president for 25 years, won his current term two years ago by defeating Whiting, 108-52.
Newell, a Suring resident for six years, is a political newcomer who emphasizes his business experience and his desire to improve education for local children.
The winner of the April 4 election will get a two-year term presiding over the village’s $600,000-a-year budget and the Village Board’s monthly meetings.
The Oconto County village has about 500 residents.
