Town of Brookfield supervisors keep seats

April 1, 2014

Town Supervisors John Schatzman and Pat Stroebel held onto their seats, fending off challenger Larry Hipp by a wide margin.

The vote totals, according to unofficial results Tuesday:

John Schatzman (i) 453

Pat Stroebel (i) 415

Larry Hipp 155

Election results remain unofficial until they are certified by the board of canvassers, which met Wednesday after press deadline.

About 12 percent of the 4,418 registered voters in the town cast ballots.

Schatzman and Stroebel both thought their records of holding down taxes were what clinched their victories.

"I think the citizens have called it correctly," Schatzman said. "I think people believe in the message of really watching our checkbook. It is about the money when it comes to taxes, and I respect the voters and I think they respect my acting on their behalf."

Stroebel agreed.

"It's good to see all the work John and myself have done to get the town in such a good financial position has really paid off, and the voters have really appreciated that," he said. "That's what people want to see, that we're spending their money wisely and building out our community in a smart way. I'm looking forward to another two great years."
