Two seek Geneva board chair post
Daniel L. Lauderdale (I)
Address: W3525 Park Drive, Lake Geneva.
Job: Police officer for the Williams Bay Police Department.
Education: Graduate of Elkhorn High School; studied criminal justice at Gateway Technical College in Elkhorn; studied to become a military police officer while in the Army National Guard.
Community service: Army National Guard, 1983-89.
Elected posts: Geneva Town Board chairman, 2007-present.
Major campaign issue: "I would like to maintain a more open style of government, representative of our citizen body by way of committees. Receiving public input should play an important role in our decision-making process. I serve you with high ethical standards, honesty and integrity, without any personal interests as motivation."
Joseph F. Kopecky
Address: W3127 MacLean Road, Elkhorn.
Job: Architect and owner of Kopecky Architects and Associates in Delavan.
Education: Bachelor's degree in architecture from UW-Milwaukee.
Community service: Member of the Town of Geneva Plan Commission, 1995.
Elected posts: Geneva Town Board chairman, 1999-2007; Geneva Town Board supervisor, 1995-99.
Major campaign issue: "Current irresponsible town leadership must go." Kopecky said the town board "wasted thousands of dollars in potential tax revenue" that would have been realized if a four-family residence at Highway 67 at Willow Bend Road had been approved. The board prevented the owners from improving their property and used taxpayer money to tear down their buildings.
