LISTEN: La Crosse School Board candidate Jerry Wacek on referendums, priorities; also St. Patty’s Day .01K “race” is coming



La Crosse School Board candidate Jerry Wacek joined WIZM’s La Crosse Talk PM on Thursday to discuss the old and new referendums in the district and some of his priorities when it comes to schools, including keeping the arts.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

Wacek is a field tech for an engineering company and he has two children in the district now — a third grader and a sophomore.

Eight are running for four open seats on the board, with the spring election cycle ending April 4. Three candidates now have been on La Crosse Talk PM — Jeff Jackson (here) and Deb Suchla (here) are the other two, so far.

Before Wacek joined, 95.7 the Rock’s Jean Taylor began the show to talk about the world’s shortest race, the St. Patty’s Day .01k happening March 17 on Pearl Street, downtown. Proceeds from the 32.8-foot race go to the Hunger Task Force.
