Schmidt re-elected mayor

Leader Reporter

Russ Schmidt will serve as the mayor of the City of Shawano for another two years.

Voters elected him to his third term as mayor by a vote of 681-598 Tuesday over John Granchay.

Although Schmidt was pleased at the election results, he said he didn't expect it to be so close.

"Certainly the city taxes was an issue," he said. "And the reassessments, which we could have postponed release of until after the election, but I didn't want to, was a factor as well."
