Tuesday’s primary has a slim ballot in the area

February 20, 2018

If predicted heavy rains and a possible ice storm do not hamper their travels, the Watertown electorate should have a pretty easy go of it at the polls in Tuesday’s election.

The only item on the ballot for Watertown and most other Dodge and Jefferson county residents will be two judges and an attorney who are seeking to replace Justice Michael Gableman for a 10-year term on the state Supreme Court. The candidates are Tim Burns, a Madison attorney; Milwaukee County Judge Rebecca Dallet and Sauk County Judge Michael Screnock.

There will be a primary in the Lake Mills Area School District on Tuesday. There are five candidates running for a seat on the board of education: Donna Thomas (incumbent), Rachael Roglitz-Davies (incumbent), Kenneth W. Stetson, David Roedl and Jason Drost. The primary will narrow the field to four candidates for the spring election.

Jefferson County Board District 30, which includes the town of Koshkonong’s Wards 4-6 and town of Sumner will see a primary among incumbent Gary Kutz, and challengers D. Jae Ames and Walt Christensen.
