Voters returned incumbent Donald Molyneux to the Thiensville Village Board - as they have almost every year for nearly 40 years.
Molyneux, a 55-year-resident of the village, was first elected to the Village Board in 1970 and has served almost continuously as either a trustee or village president since that time. He was the top vote getter with 399 votes in a three-candidate contest for two vacant seats on the Village Board.
Toni Ihler, a 15-year-resident who is a program educator at Columbia-St. Mary's and a member of the Thiensville Fire Department, was also elected to fill a second seat on the board. Voters cast 333 votes for Ihler.
The third candidate, Gail Buenger, received 292 votes.
Trustee Elmer Prenzlow did not run for re-election.
Trustees serve three-year terms and earn $1,800 a year.
