Primary Ballot Sees Bounty of Council Seats in La Crosse
It's been awhile since there's been this many primary elections in La Crosse city council races. At least ten years since there were as many as the five primaries on Tuesday's ballot. That's half of the total number of council seats on the ballot in April and two of those are uncontested. City council members Doug Farmer in district 10, Bruce Ranis in district 12, And Lorraine Decker in district 15 all face two challengers on Tuesday. In district 7, three are running to fill a seat left vacant when Mike Larsen quit in the fall. District 13 has three looking to replace Bernie Maney who just recently announced he was done with a fifty year run on the council.
