Primary also held for 2 Woodruff supervisor seats
STAR JOURNAL REPORT
Tuesday’s primary election results in Oneida County mirrored statewide returns in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race.
The two circuit court judges in the race – Sauk County Judge Michael Screnock and Milwaukee County Judge Rebecca Dallet – advanced to the April 3 spring general election as the top-two primary candidates, eliminating Middleton attorney Tim Burns.
According to unofficial election results, Screnock, who garnered the most votes statewide, was the top choice of Oneida County primary voters with 1,649 votes. Dallet also came in second in the county with 956 votes. Burns received 714 votes in the county.
The statewide winner April 3 will be elected to a 10-year term on the Supreme Court.
WOODRUFF SUPERVISOR PRIMARY
Though the Supreme Court race was the only primary on the ballot for all of Oneida County, voters in the town of Woodruff also went to the polls Tuesday to narrow the field of candidates running for two seats on the Town Board from five to four.
Incumbents Barry Seidel Jr. and Ed G. Richardson advanced to the April 3 general election as did challengers Raymond Christenson and Mike Doud. Seidel received the most votes with 177, followed by Richardson (160), Christenson (138) and Doud (115). Challenger Todd Albano came in fifth with 64 votes and did not advance to the general election when the top-two candidates will be elected to two-year terms.
