CITY OF PEWAUKEE - An 18-year member of the Pewaukee Joint Park and Recreation Board is the newest member of the Pewaukee Common Council.
Brian Dziwulski was the winner in Tuesday's special election to fill the vacant District 3 aldermanic seat.
Dziwulski earned 44 votes as a write-in candidate; Doug Kiser received five votes and 21 other write-ins received one vote each. Just 70 votes total were cast.
"I'm looking forward to getting down to work and seeing what it is what we've got to do or what I have to do," Dziwulski said.
The newly elected alderman will take the place of Steven Bierce, who left the seat to become the city mayor April 4. Dziwulski will serve the remainder of the seat's term, which runs until April 19, 2019.
Once he settles into his new role, Dziwulski said he wants to see the city work together more with other municipalities.
"We need to look at how we can be more-efficient working with others because it's just getting too expensive," Dziwulski said. "Same in business. I mean, businesses are doing more with less. There's only so much you can do there in government, and you still need to have services. So how can we do it by working together and getting more and actually costing each of us less? Who knows what that will be, but I think we have to start looking at that, to be honest with you."
