Six candidates get over 10% of vote in La Crosse School Board primary



The field in the La Crosse School Board race was cut from nine to eight in Tuesday’s primary.

Kevin Hundt was eliminated from the field with 6.41 percent of the vote.

Deb Suchla was the only candidate to get over 15 percent. Six candidates got over 10 percent.

There was 29,341 votes cast in the 33 precincts that make up the La Crosse School District.

The eight candidates that move on (top eight from list below) will be cut to four when voting concludes on April 4.

Four current school board members elected not to run, so all four seats are open. School board terms are three years long, but the person in the April election that gets the least votes will serve a one-year term from a board member resigning early.

Here are the results:

  • Deb Suchla 4,474 15.25%
  • Scott Neumeister 4,177 14.24%
  • Trevor Sprague 3,565 12.15%
  • Jeff Jackson 3,425 11.67%
  • Kathi Blanchard 3,197 10.90%
  • Jerry Wacek 2,991 10.19%
  • Kimberly Krejchik 2,883 9.83%
  • Tim Alberts 2,594 8.84%
  • Kevin Hundt 1,882 6.41%
  • Write-In Totals 153 0.52%
