The La Crosse County Board chooses an 11-year board veteran as its new leader.
Monica Kruse was unopposed, as she was elected on Tuesday night as board chairman for the next two years.
Kruse thanked fellow supervisors for placing their faith in her, and said “Let’s get to work.”
What might normally be a fairly routine post-election board meeting was complicated a bit by social distancing.
Since supervisors elected this month were attending by Skype, some of them wound up talking over each other while taking the oath of office from Judge Scott Horne.
Richmond and Randy Erickson were tied on the second ballot, and one vote apparently switched to Richmond on the third ballot.
