Crawford Eliminated in Village Trustee Primary

The former Milwaukee County judge received the least votes in the five-way village trustee election. Now, four candidates will compete for two seats in the general election on April 2.

Robert Crawford has been knocked out of the five-way village trustee race, receiving the least votes in Tuesday's primary election.

Crawford, a retired attorney and Milwaukee County judge, has chastised the Village Board in recent years for not being more aggressive with its sewer improvement plans. 

Whitefish Bay traditionally enjoys high turnout numbers, but even with a village trustee primary on the ballot, turnout only measured 21 percent.

Four candidates remain in the race for two available trustee seats in the April 2 election. Four-year incumbent Trustee Jay Miller received the most votes (889); Carl Fuda received 812 votes; Kevin McMahon received 444 votes and Kenneth Wysocky received 422 votes. Crawford received 295 votes.

Trustees serve three-year terms and earn $600 annually.
