- Village board trustee No. 4 Ed Willing
- Village board trustee No. 6 Lee Wishau

Trentadue and Wishau have turned in their papers. Political newcomers April Weatherston, wife of Rep. Tom Weatherston, and Eric Butcher took out papers, but have not returned them. April intends to run against Willing. Butcher plans to run against Trentadue. Although Willing has not turned in his papers, he told the Racine County Eye that he intends to run for re-election.
