This is a new wrinkle in the WI State Law that allows Cities, Villages and Towns to not hold a primary if there is no state wide primary thereby saving tax payer dollars.
So what does a town do to meet state requirements when they have a 3 person town board? Violate state law? So what does a town do? Increase their board to 7 or more? Some might say Richfield needs to increase the number of officials on the Richfield Village Board to 7 or 9. HOGWASH.
One would hope the WI State Legislature considered that candidates in an upcoming election might be current serving officials. Therefore the law should permit current sitting officials to conduct official business in this situation, as it is their job to follow statutes set by the state..
This idea of conflct of interest, valid or not by Danah Zoulek, needs to be reviewed by the WI State Legislature.
List of candidates and order on the ballot wil be forth coming.
