Candice Tlustosch in studio discussing her run for judge in La Crosse County. Tlustosch, an attorney out of La Crosse, talks about the big issues she sees in the courts, what could be improved and how her experience makes her the right fit for Circuit Court Branch 3.

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.

Of course, we start the show with some nonsense and what lawyer-like TV shows are the best and worst, and her answer may or may not surprise you. 

Tlustosch was appointed by then-Gov. Scott Walker to the District 5 bench in La Crosse County and served out that term. So, we also talked about the race being nonpartisan but also having hints of partisanship.

Tlustosch got her law degree in 2005 from the University of Wisconsin and has been practicing ever since.

Her opponent, current Branch 5 Judge, Mark Huesmann, was appointed by Gov. Tony Evers back in July to replace Judge Todd Bjerke, who retired.

Huesmann also joined La Crosse Talk PM. Listen to that interview here.
