(Juneau) Two write-in candidates are vying for the District 32 seat on the Dodge County Board. Incumbent Lisa Derr, seeking her fourth term, says that she had sent in her signatures but just missed the deadline so her name will not appear on the ballot. She says her experience is what gives her the edge. Derr says a first term supervisor cannot get much done and takes until at least their first term ends or their second begins to get their feet under them. She says she has passed through that phase and feels she is in a place now where she can help make things better.
During Wednesday’s appearance on WBEV’s Community Comment, Challenger Linda Yuds detailed why she has mounted a write-in campaign. She says she found out in February that there was no declared candidate on the ballot and believes that it is better for the voters to choose who they want than the county appoint someone. Yuds says she is dedicated to retaining residents to help the local economy. Adding that it is time for a change and a fresh voice.
The District 32 seat includes wards seven and nine in the city of Beaver Dam.
