Special Assembly seat elections on tap for Tuesday

    Tuesday will see special elections in local GOP-dominated Assembly districts to replace two new members of Gov. Scott Walker’s administration.
    Mark Gottlieb, the former Port Washington mayor who represented the 60th Assembly District and was re-elected without opposition in November 2010, is now Walker’s transportation secretary. Scott Gunderson, who won the 83rd Assembly District in the Waterford area with nearly 79 percent of the vote last fall, is now the executive assistant in the Department of Natural Resources.
    A third special election is taking place in the La Crosse-area’s 94th Assembly District, once represented by Walker’s administration secretary, Mike Huebsch.
    Money reports show Dem candidates with more financial resources than expected. In the 60th, Duey Stroebel ( R-Cedarburg) reported raising $9,385 during the pre-election period. He spent $10,037 and had $412 cash on hand, along with loans of $8,500. His opponent, Rick Aaron (D-Bayside) reported $8,503 raised, $1,876 spent and $8,957 cash on hand.
    In the 83rd, Jim Brownlow (D-Muskego) reported $12,538 raised, $3,208 spent and $12,393 cash on hand in his bid. Republican Dave Craig of Vernon raised $5,213, spent $6,738 and had $8,720 in the bank with $1,150 in debts.
