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.

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.

While the Village Board field is packed, the Whitefish Bay School Board election is uncontested with two candidates running for two open seats.

The five candidates running for village trustee are incumbent Trustee Jay Miller, Robert Crawford, Kenneth Wysocky, Carl Fuda and Kevin McMahon. Because there are five candidates, the village will hold a primary election on Feb. 19 that will narrow the field to four candidates for the spring election on April 2.

Trustee Jay Miller will run for re-election, while six-year incumbent Jim Roemer has decided to step down.
Trustee Jim Roemer's decision to step down from the Village Board was not an easy one. Roemer has served on the board for six years, which is longer than any other trustee on the board. A managing director working in commercial real estate at The PrivateBank, Roemer's service to the village began nearly 11 years ago when he joined the Community Development Authority. He will continue to carry out his second term until a new trustee is elected on April 2. Jay Miller, the other trustee whose term is up, will seek re-election to his second full term.
