Greendale — The Greendale Village Board will soon welcome one newcomer to its ranks.
In the race between three candidates for two open village trustee seats, challenger Carl Genz and incumbent Ronald Barbian came out on top.
According to unofficial results of Tuesday's election, Barbian received 1,114 votes, Genz received 877 votes and fellow challenger Noelle Joers-Yanisch received 658 votes.
A candidate for Village Board in two previous elections, Genz, 53, found that his third time was the charm.
"It was a good effort by everybody, and I'm pretty proud to have come out with the votes I had," he said. "I will not let the taxpayers of Greendale down."
Genz has said that he plans to focus on keeping taxes low, without sacrificing the quality of village services.
Barbian, 56, was first elected to the Village Board in 2007. He could not be reached for comment.
Joers-Yanisch, a 46-year-old management consultant, has resided in Greendale for 43 years. It was her first time running for a political office.
Election results remain unofficial until certified by the Board of Canvassers. Village trustees serve three-year terms and earn a starting salary of $5,345, which increases incrementally over the next two years.
