Three of the six Waukesha County Board positions up for re-election this spring involving city or town of Waukesha seats will be contested.

Supervisors Kathleen Cummings, Larry Nelson and Duane Paulson have challengers for their seats, while David Swan, Bill Mitchell and Michael Crowley are running unopposed.

Resident Jaron Mosier is challenging Paulson in District 17. Paulson has served on the county board since 1998. Paulson was also an alderman in the city of Waukesha from 2010-12.

Meanwhile, city of Waukesha Alderman Daniel Manion is seeking Larry Nelson's District 18 county board seat.

Manion has been an alderman on the city's southside since 2013. Nelson, who served as the mayor of Waukesha from 2006-10, has served on the county board since 2012.

Cummings, who has been on the board since 1999, is facing opposition from Mike Payne for her District 19 seat. Along with being a county board supervisor, Cummings is also an alderwoman on the Waukesha Common Council.

Payne is no stranger to local government, either. He is a member of the city of Waukesha Plan Commission, a member of the Waukesha County Airport Operations Commission and chairman of the Waukesha County Business Alliance's Economic Development Committee.

Since each of these races include only two candidates there will be no primaries. The general election is April 5.
