Small number of candidates on La Crosse council ballot as filing deadline for April approaches
Candidates have two days left to file papers for the city council election in La Crosse this spring, and as of last week, there’s only one contested council race.
The most recent posting on the city’s webpage lists two candidates who have declared in the 1st District, Zach Harter and Tamra Dickinson. They’re running to succeed retiring council member Andrea Richmond.
In the 2nd district, there was no declared candidate as of last Tuesday. Scott Neumeister is running for La Crosse School Board instead of for another term on the council.
Four other council seats, in Districts 3 through 6, are up for election in April, and the four incumbents in those districts are unopposed at this point.
The filing deadline for April is 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
