Not one, but two races trimmed in Tuesdays primary
Placeholder Image

Wisconsin voters will reduce the number of Supreme Court candidates from three to two in Tuesday’s primary election.

City of Platteville voters, meanwhile, will have a primary election for one of the two Common Council seats up for election this year on Tuesday.

At-large Ald. Steven Becker, 1455 Karla Dr., has two opponents — Barbara Stockhausen, 935 Siemers St., and Michael Denn, 1270 Stans Court — for his three-year term.

Stockhausen also is opposing Common Council President Mike Dalecki for his District 1 Common Council seat. Stockhausen therefore will be on the ballot April 2 for at least the District 1 council seat, or both the District 1 and at-large seats.

The other race on the Feb. 19 primary ballot will be for State Supreme Court, where incumbent Justice Pat Roggensack has two challengers, Marquette University Prof. Ed Fallone of Whitefish Bay and attorney Vince Megna of Menomonee Falls.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The top two candidates will advance to the April 2 general election.

The other statewide race April 2 will be for state superintendent of public instruction, with incumbent Tony Evers opposed by state Rep. Donald Pridemore (R–Hartford).
