Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
On Friday, I stopped in at City Hall to get a sample ballot. While there, I noticed some people were voting absentee--before candidate fliers have gone out. There is also some confusion as to how to vote for someone as a write-in candidate. I hope this posting clears that up.
It is a good idea to write NANCY KORMANIK AT-LARGE on a piece of paper to take with you to the polls. That way, you won't forget the spelling or which race you are writing her in for.
This is a photo of what your ballot should look like if you are voting for Write-In Nancy Kormanik. Simply connect the arrow next to WRITE-IN and print the name on the line provided. Make sure it is on the proper race: Member AT-LARGE SEAT.
The following contains the information included in the flier for Nancy Kormanik. (Sorry, I couldn't post the exact PDF.) You may LINK to her pdf to view an exact copy of her campaign flier or to print yourself to share with friends. (If distributing large numbers of copies, check with Elmbrook Deputy Clerks Keith Brightman or Pat Felde at 262-783-2963, as to how to reword the disclaimer. This flier has been posted here at no cost.)

I have decided to run for Member-at-Large of the Elmbrook School Board to provide a different perspective, easing the frustration evident in these economic times. By re-focusing on fundamentals, I can partner with other board members to re-direct the educational process, guiding us to provide children with meaningful learning opportunities while being ever more vigilant financially. While empowering students to take charge of their education, we can remain accountable to our taxpayers.
A community’s schools represent a large investment. The expected return is two-fold:
- First, in terms of graduating students prepared to master their future,
- Second, in terms of fostering a strong community.
I believe it is essential to do both.
My personal philosophy is straightforward: Continued improvement of our students’ educational experiences is a primary focus. All energies must be expended to guarantee that the foundations of our educational system remain solid.
My experiences as a post-secondary educator identified the discrepancies that exist in education. The gaps are great and need to be closed. ALL students want to be successful. ALL students should be given the same district-wide opportunities to work towards their success. We can give our children those opportunities within our monetary means – it’s all about priorities.
Drawing on my experiences as an educator, administrator, parent of grown children, and community member, I am able to understand, appreciate, and combine various vantage points into workable solutions.
