Another Assemblyman Drops Out

Written by

One more spot in the state assembly just opened up. Democrat Mark Radcliffe says that he’s leaving. The Black River Falls lawmaker says four years is enough, and he won’t run for re election this fall.

As part of the state’s redistricting plan, Republicans placed Radcliffe in the same district as his fellow Assembly Democrat Chris Danou of Trempealeau. Radcliffe said the re districting played a role in his decision but even if it didn’t happen, he said he might not have run again anyway. He said his family has been talking about his plans for the last couple of months.

The 40-year-old Radcliffe says it’s time to give someone else a chance.

New Garbage Rules Lacking Universal Support

Written by

There's clearly some landlords frustrated with the city of La Crosse.   New proposed garbage rules have some crying foul, even after the new regulations were re-worked to be more palatable to landlords.  Not enough, says David Olson.  He recommends the city look to its own Oktoberfest mess first

 

 

The full city council votes on the rules next month.  Among other things, the regulations would allow the city to go after the worst mess-makers with fines up to a thousand dollars.
