Mequon-Thiensville School Board candidates discuss talents and experiences, top district priorities
Updated: Mar 12
One of four Mequon-Thiensville School Board members who survived a recall election in November 2021 is the last of the four still seeking to keep her spot on the board.
Wendy Francour and fellow incumbent Erik Hollander are both up for election this year. However, while Francour is planning to run again, Hollander is not. That means there will be at least one new board member elected this year. Last year, the two other board members who survived the 2021 recall election — Akram Khan and Chris Schultz — both chose not to run again.
This year, Francour and three challengers — Sergey Babakhanov, Kate Barikmo and Megan Heinzelman — will square off for two seats on the board.
The candidates responded to questions about what they would bring to the board, what they consider to be the district's top priority and whether they think the relationship between the school board and community has improved since the recall. Candidates were asked to limit their responses to 100 words.
