Special primary election Tuesday for 69th Assembly seat

Posted:

It's election day Tuesday—at least, for some people in our area.

Voters will head to the polls in a special primary election for what has been a pretty influential Assembly seat.

For 14 years the 69th Assembly seat has belonged to Scott Suder, a Republican and former majority leader. But last month Suder resigned to take a new job.

Now four Republicans are vying to get on the final ballot to replace him:

Tommy Dahlen, the owner of a bar and grill in Granton and treasurer for the Tavern League of Wisconsin.

Bob Kulp, a businessman from Stratford and member of the Marshfield Rotary.

Alanna Feddick, an attorney and member of the Marshfield City Council since 2004.

Scott Noble, a former Marshfield alderman and special education teacher.

One of these four candidates will advance to the final ballot. The general election is scheduled for November 19.

The Republican winner will face Democrat Kenneth Slezak of Neillsville.
