Cieslewicz, Allen to Face Off in Madison

Madison Mayor Dave Cieslewicz continued his effort to label Ray Allen a Republican Tuesday night, while the challenger promised he wouldn't "spend my time on trolleys."

Both men continued to lay out the battles lines they've already draw in their race for Madison mayor after advancing out of Tuesday's primary.

With all precincts reporting, Cieslewicz finished with 58 percent of the vote, while Allen came in with 30 percent. Peter Munoz and Will Sandstrom trailed with 10 percent and 2 percent, respectively.

Cieslewicz said he planned to focus on his plans to manage Madison's success in "a way that doesn't mess up the things that people come here for in the first place."

"Clearly, he is proud to be a Republican. I don't fault him for it. He contributes to Republican candidates. He contributes to Republican causes," Cieslewicz said. "That is out of touch with Madison."

Munoz indicated he will support Allen in the general election.

Allen said the results show that voters are looking for "somebody who will manage the city well, hold down taxes and address crime." Allen vowed to run an aggressive fundraising campaign and was happy that Munoz has thrown his support behind him.

"I think that’s a very positive effect," he said. "Peter got 10 percent of the vote, and we will welcome that support."
