GREEN BAY – Of the 12 city council members seeking re-election to new two-year terms this spring, only four of them will be unopposed.
The eight contested races will also feature two primaries Feb. 18.
In District 6, Kathy Lefebvre, who was the focus of an ethics complaint after disclosing confidential information last May out of a closed session held by the city Parks Committee, faces four challengers.
Lefebvre’s primary opponents include Paul Boucher, Stewart Larsen, Michael Lee and Justin Paradise.
Another primary will be held in District 9, where the incumbent, Brian Johnson, is being challenged by Desiree May and former Alderman Guy Zima.
In the primaries, the top two vote-getters will advance to the April 7 general election.

The candidates in those races, with the incumbent listed first, include:
• District 2, Veronica Corpus-Dax and Thomas De Wane.

• District 7, Randy Scannell and Rachel Heu.
• District 8, Christopher Wery and Jennifer Schlei.
