— Two newcomers are vying for the supervisor No. 3 position on the Geneva Town Board. Incumbent Trish Fahey is not seeking re-election.

Gene Decker

Age: 63

Address: W4159 Hemlock Road, Lake Geneva.

Job: Retired from Morton Salt, Chicago.

Education: Bachelor's degree in finance and accounting, University of Nebraska, 1971; master's degree in business administration, Pennsylvania State University, 1990.

Community service: Member of the Lake Como Beach Property Owners Association, 2007-present.

Elected posts: None.

Major campaign issues: Issues facing the town include taxes, which are up significantly because of school districts supported by the town; sewer and water for homeowners on the south shore of Lake Como; emergency services currently contracted to three neighboring municipalities without clear accountability, and expanding and replacing a very cramped and antiquated town hall.


Larry K. Kulik

Age: 53

Address: W3768 South Shore Drive, Lake Geneva.

Job: Unemployed; paid-on-call firefighter, Lake Geneva Fire Department.

Education: Served in the Marine Corps, 1974-79.

Community service: Member of American Legion Post 24, Lake Geneva; member of the ad hoc Lake Como lake committee, 1998-present; member of the Town of Geneva Lake Committee, 2008-present.

Elected posts: None.

Major campaign issue: Our current and future economic climate mandates we closely scrutinize all government expenditures and monitor revenues. We need to reduce spending, not find ways to spend more taxpayer money, like a new town hall. I feel I can help accomplish this.
