Sussex trustee Wegner will resign

Village officials outline options

May 23, 2014

Sussex — The village bcoard was expected to discuss at its Tuesday, May 27, meeting what steps should be taken to replace four-term trustee Jason Wegner, who is reportedly resigning because he is moving out of the village into the town of Lisbon.

Village Clerk Sue Freiheit said late Friday afternoon that she had not yet received Wegner's letter of resignation but she expected to receive it before Tuesday's meeting, which will occur after the deadlines for the Wednesday, May 28, edition of the Sussex Sun.

The board has two options, according to village officials, it may appoint a successor to Wegner or it may call a special election. According to several sources, the trustees are likely to appoint a successor.

Wegner was first elected to the board in 2007, an election that saw a village president and several incumbents defeated in a reform movement that swept village elections. Wegner won re-election in a contested election in 2009 and was elected without opposition in 2011 and 2013.
