Parisi, Bruskewitz advance in Dane County exec race

The state’s fiscal problems are likely to play a role in the race for Dane County executive, the candidates say.

State Rep. Joe Parisi and County Board Supv. Eileen Bruskewitz advanced out of Tuesday’s primary.

Parisi, D-Madison, said the guv’s proposals affecting union employees will allow Dane County to show there is a better way.

“We’re going to show that you can face your challenges by working with your employees, working with your workers cooperatively in order to find solution to the challenge that we see as the opposite to the Walker way, which is waging war on employees,” Parisi said.

Bruskewitz said she recently received a report on what Gov. Scott Walker’s proposals would mean for Dane County and is still studying the impact.

Still, she said the county has engaged in some of the same fiscal practices as the state, creating similar problems. That includes raising taxes 10 percent of the past two years and raiding funds.

“My sense of this is that the reason that I pulled through is because people are concerned about their economic conditions,” Bruskewitz said. “They’re looking for someone that has some experience with a budget and who want accountability in government.”’
