MacCluskey declines to move on to general election in Richmond School race

Although he wasn't running, enough voters in the Richmond School District cast ballots for Bill MacCluskey in Tuesday's primary to advance him to the April general election.

MacCluskey said late Wednesday that he would decline the seat. He had sent a letter to the School District earlier this month asking to withdraw from the race, but it was too late to have his name removed from the ballot. 

MacCluskey garnered 64 votes in Tuesday's primary - fourth in a field of five - which qualified him to advance to the general election on April 2. He sent a letter to the School District earlier this month, stating he would like to withdraw his candidacy to spend more timecaring for his ailing mother.

Michelle Jackson received the fewest votes, 39. She could not be reached for comment.

Cindy Milgram was the big winner in Tuesday's primary race, receiving the most votes with 108, followed by Lew Krisberg with 102 votes, Victor Frangopoulos with 83 votes and MacCluskey.

Voters will have an opportunity to hear the candidates' positions on a variety of issues at a March 19 candidate forum.

Milgram, 38, was excited about the results.

"I appreciate the confidence the voters have placed in me and now I plan on preparing for the April 2 election," she said.

MacCluskey's success at the polls came as a surprise, since he had withdrawn. The Lake Country Reporter reported Feb. 10 that MacCluskey had been pursued by the State of Wisconsin for tax delinquency in 2002 and 2012, paying $72,000 in back taxes and penalties.

Krisberg, 61, said he is happy he will compete in the general election.

Frangopolous, 44, said he was not sure how everything would play out.

"I am honored and grateful to move on to the next phase of the Richmond election," he said. "Thanks to everyone who supported me."
