Scrima will seek a second term as Waukesha's mayor

Filed his campaign registration statement today

Dec. 27, 2013

Mayor Jeff Scrima has entered the race.

After months of staying quiet as to whether he would seek a second term as the mayor of Waukesha, Scrima filed a campaign registration statement and a declaration of candidacy with the clerk-treasurer's office, Clerk-Treasurer Gina Kozlik said Friday.

She said Scrima turned in his papers this morning. Today was also the deadline for elected officials to file for non-candidacy.

Scrima now has to collect between 200 and 400 signatures and turn in his nomination papers before Jan. 7, 2014.

He joins three other candidates already in the race.

Downtown Waukesha attorney Shawn Reilly, Common Council President Terry Thieme and company trainer Mike Volpano all filed this summer.

A primary to narrow the field to two candidates will be held Feb. 18, 2014. The general election is April 1.

Scrima, with a background in real estate, defeated first-term incumbent Larry Nelson in 2010.

The two had emerged from a five-person primary.
