Candidates and issues

Wisconsin 99th Assembly District candidates differ on economy fixes

Waukesha County Clerk

Two newcomers face off in clerk's race

While the state and the country will have their eyes on national elections on Nov. 6, Waukesha County voters will have their eyes on the race for county clerk. Republican Kathleen Novack of Pewaukee and Democrat Jessie Read of Sussex will vie for the position currently held by Kathy Nickolaus, who is not seeking re-election.

Palmyra-Eagle referendum

Aging buildings, budget shortfalls behind Palmyra-Eagle school referendum

After nearly two years of studying district needs and a comprehensive facilities study in 2010, the Palmyra-Eagle Area School District (PEASD) readies for two referendum questions Nov. 6 asking for more funds. The money would enable the district to maintain programs and services as well as borrow for facilities projects.(1)

38th Assembly District

Conservative, liberal views clash in Wisconsin 38th Assembly district

A Libertarian and Democrat will attempt to unseat four-term 38th Assembly incumbent Joel Kleefisch (R-Oconomowoc) on Nov. 6. Libertarian Leroy Watson is no stranger to the campaign process, having run unsuccessfully for Assembly three times and for Oconomowoc Common Council nine times. Watson has said that he runs to make sure there is a challenger and also to promote the Libertarian platform. Democratic newcomer Scott Michalak of Marshall touts himself as a middle-class family man who will fight for working families.

37th Assembly District

Wisconsin 37th Assembly District candidates offer contrast for voters

Democratic candidate Mary Arnold and Republican candidate John Jagler will square off in November for the opportunity to represent the constituents of the 37th Assembly District.

Ballot confusion in Senate primary

A special primary election to fill a vacancy in the 33rd State Senate District that will be held in conjunction with the Nov. 6 general election will pose some challenges for local election officials. It could also create confusion for voters casting absentee ballots and perhaps delay the determination of the winner of the primary contest.

New law may beg the question: To absentee, or not to absentee?

A new state law limits the time residents can head to their local polling place to submit an absentee ballot. Starting Monday, you can vote absentee at your polling for convenience and to beat the long lines on election day. However, if you wait until the last day before absentee voting closes, you could end up waiting in line.

98th Assembly District

Tough economic and environmental balance for next Wisconsin 98th Assemblyman

Political newcomer Eric Prudent (D) is challenging incumbent Paul Farrow (R) for the 98th Assembly seat. One stark contrast between the two candidates - balancing economic issues with environmental issues - may be informed by their work outside Madison.(3)

Congressional District 5

Challenger faces tough battle in Wisconsin Congressional District 5

Menomonee Falls Internet technology architect Dave Heaster, 46, a Democrat, faces what many political observers might regard as an almost impossible task: upsetting 17-term incumbent Congressman James Sensenbrenner, a Republican, also of Menomonee Falls.(1)
