WASHINGTON AVE. CLEVELAND, Wl S30IS-OIS8 920-693-8256 Americas scaling opeuausi No incumbent in Plymouth alderman race By Emmitt B. Feldner Sheboygan Press staff Voters in the City of Plymouth's 4th Aldermanic District will choose between two candidates with experience on the Common Council and one candidate looking to start a career on the council in Tuesday's primary. The top two finishers in the primary will move on to the April 5 general election, where they will be seeking the seat now held by Peter Rammer. Rammer, president of the council, is not seeking re-election after serving five terms. James Flanagan Owner of a downtown insurance agency, Flanagan represented the district from 1998 to 2002 and made two unsuccessful bids for mayor, in 2000 and 2002.. It's that experience, and his record in city government, that he wants to bring to the council. "I am truly an alternative to the other two candidates who are running," Flanagan said. "There are vast differences in our approach to the job. I question a lot, not only why but where does this take us. Whether you believe in my approach to the job or not, you need me, or someone like me, looking out for your interests as taxpayers." Flanagan sees a need for the city to do a better job of dealing with the issue of responsible growth. "We're starting to stretch to the outer ridges of our community too broadly in one direction. We need to focus on some in-fill activities, in areas closer to our existing infrastructure, so the cost to extend isn't as great as it is if we continue to extend in entirely new areas." He also contends that the city has relied too much on debt to fund its growth and would there until his partner came-to put in a stake for a future highway project. .., After waiting several minutes, the woman returned to her home to find the vehicle Costa had driven up in gone and the lock on her front door broken. She then discovered the safe missing from inside the house. The three men were captured in Port Washington later that same day. They were allegedly involved in a similar incident earlier in the day in Kaukauna, where they posed as representatives of a contracting company. The three men are being held in Sheboygan County Jail on bail, $45,000 for Costa and $75,000 each for Dean and Velez. Dean's fingerprints came s te eh PP LlUC ' r !

"I want to work on important issues for the taxpayers," Flanagan said. "I want to make sure someone is there watching out for them as far as things as they come up and plans down the road." Charles Hansen Rammer's decision not to run again, combined with the graduation of his youngest child from high school last summer, gave Hansen the chance to act on his long-time desire to become more involved in city government and run for the council. for 3 men back from the FBI matched to the name D"anny Marino, and he is apparently wanted in California for a parole violation , under the name Daniel Fleetwood, according to DeCecco. Other aliases found for Dean include Dean John, Daniel Mitchell and Marino Fleetwood, he said. Velez is wanted in Pennsylvania for a parole violation under the name Paul Miguel, while his fingerprints came back from the FBI matched to the name John Chase and he also showed an alias of Steve Miguel, If convicted on all three felony charges, the three men would each face up to 20 years in prison and 15 years probation and a $75,000 fine.

He admitted he would have to spend his first year on the council learning the ins and outs of city government. But he said the most important thing would be listening to his constituents. "I don't think you can come in with an agenda," he said. "You've got to let your constituents do that, ask them what's going on and find out their concerns."

"I think I can motivate people, get people involved in things. One of my strengths is getting people involved in the community." Thomas Wegner 'Wegner left the Common Council 10 years ago after serving four terms. Four years ago, he got back into city government when he was appointed to the Plan Commission. s He said he believes the city, under Mayor William Kiley, has been successful at encouraging growth while at the same time being fiscally responsible. "I believe in continued industrial, residential and commercial growth," Wegner said. "This growth should be as planned and organized as it can be, recognizing that some opportunities require quick action." He also said he would serve as a watchdog on the city budget and taxes, pointing to his record while serving earlier on the council. As he did then, Wegner said, he would like to pursue shared services and other means of saving money for the city. "We should not be afraid to try new things," he said. Reach Emmitt B.
