WAUPUN – Waupun mayor Jodi Steger will not seek a sixth term.

Steger has formally withdrawn from the race, rather than face former city administrator Kyle Clark in the April 1 election. Steger told the Fond du Lac Reporter that she’d rather bow out than see her 17 years in public service “end in negativity.”

Steger became Waupun’s first female mayor when she was elected in 2004. Previously, she had served as an alderman since 1997.
