Candidates with Capitol Ties Have Mixed Success in Local Races

There were several candidates on the ballot tonight with Capitol ties, and they had mixed success.

Lobbyist Jeff Wiswell Sr. finished fourth out of four candidates vying for three spots on the Monona City Council, according to unofficial returns.

Bob Miller finished first with 29 percent of the vote, while Douglas Wood was second with 25 percent. Dale Suslick edged Wiswell, who's been on the council since 2003, by five votes, 1,197 to 1,192.

Former Dem state Rep. Tom Hebl won his race for municipal judge in Sun Prairie. Hebl won with almost 70 percent of the vote over Charlie Schutze.

Former Dem state Senate candidate Jamie Aulik came back from his loss in November to GOP Sen. Joe Leibham to win his race for Manitowoc County clerk with 52 percent of the vote in a three-way race.

State Sen. Alan Lasee, R-DePere, lost his bid for Brown County executive, while former state Corrections Department spokesman Bill Clausius lost his bid for Sun Prairie mayor. (See more on those races below.)

Tim Cullen, former Senate majority leader and Department of Health and Social Services secretary under Gov. Tommy Thompson, was the top vote-getter in the Janesville School Board race. Cullen received 6,313 votes, according to unofficial returns. He recently retired as government relations director for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wisconsin.
