Muskego's 7th Aldermanic District will get a new but a familiar face as its Common Council representative.
The council on Tuesday night appointed former alderwoman Eileen Madden to fill the year remaining on the term of Alderman Noah Fiedler, who will step down at the end of the week due to increased family and work commitments.
Ironically, Fiedler unseated Madden for 7th District alderman in 2007. She had served since 2000.
When Fiedler announced his resignation, the council opened the door for applications. It got three - Madden, Lawrence Jansen and Deborah Tomcyzk, each of which was asked to answer eight questions from aldermen.
After Jansen was eliminated in the first round of balloting, Madden and Deborah Tomczyk ended in a tie with three aldermen for each. (Fiedler, the seventh alderman on the council, did not vote or participate in the selection process.) Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti cast the tie-breaking vote.
