The results are in from the Tuesday, April 2, 2019 Spring Election.

Jones, who served three years on the council, is moving to a different ward. Hofmann is retiring after 16 years on the council. John Reischel is the new ward 2 alderperson and Jason Bauch is the new ward 4 alderperson. In the only statewide race for seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, the results as of April 3 with 100 percent of the state’s precincts reporting, show judge Brian Hagedorn with 605,728 votes (or 50.25 percent of the total) as the winner over Lisa Neubauer with 599, 768 votes (49.75 percent). Neubauer could still call for a recount, but she would have to pay the expenses of the recount. Hagedorn was a clear winner in Chippewa County with 6,159 votes to Neubauer’s 4,654.
