Fruhling-Voges to be mayor

Tami Fruhling-Voges will be the next mayor of St. Joseph.

No one filed to run as a write in candidate and no one ran at the Democrat Caucus held in December, meaning the Republican will be the only person on the ballot on April 4.

Fruhling-Voges said she was excited to lead St. Joseph.

(I’m) very excited about the potential of leading this community onward to continue being the best small town to have a business, visit, live and raise a family in,” she said. “But most of all I feel very proud to be able to have the opportunity to serve such a great community.”

Fruhling-Voges has served a village trustee since 2005 and would often joke with Mayor B.J. Hackler that she would be mayor some day.

Little did she know that would come true.

In May Fruhling-Voges will be tasked with leading the town of more than 4,000.

She said that the first item on her agenda is becoming more familiar with the day to day things that Hackler has been tackling for 35 years.

“(I want to) find my path to continue with those things and set forth some of my own goals and plans for the future of the village,” she said.

Those plans include helping the businesses that call St. Joseph be more successful, which, Fruhling-Voges said, will encourage more people to be excited to come to the village and start other businesses.  Fruhling-Voges said the opportunity for new housing developments of various types is also an exciting opportunity for the village.

“This will be a thoughtful process to make sure we address any concerns for our infrastructure and other issues related to growth in a community,” she said.

Fruhling-Voges is also excited to work to improve what St. Joseph already has.

“Some other things that I am excited to work towards is the opportunities that come with having in our community a wonderful sports complex and other parks, a bike trail coming to the village and the future educational center at the Wetlands west of the village,” she said. “These amenities will bring years of enjoyment for all those in our community and visitors.”

Fruhling-Voges said she plans to use Hackler, who endorsed her at the Republican Caucus in December, as a resource.

“I have enjoyed wiring with B.J. for all these years and he has been a wonderful mentor,” she said. “I have learned a lot from him.”

Fruhling-Voges said she is honored the Republican Caucus nominated her for the ballot and that she will be the next mayor.

“When I began serving on the village board people would ask why and my answer has always been that it has never been about an agenda,” she said. “It’s more about the passion for a community that has been a part of me and my family all my life.”
