The appearance in Green Lake of two candidates for public office. Jill Karofsky and Joni Anderson, did not go unnoticed by the Green Lake Reporter. The Reporter ran an article, with a photo of Karofsky, on its front page. The article on Anderson’s presentation was at the top of page six.
Both candidates spoke at the Jan. 4 meeting of the Green Lake County Dems & Friends. Karofsky seeks a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court and Anderson is running for the 14th State Senate seat now held by Luther Olsen (R-Ripon). Karofsky faces two challengers in a Feb. 18th nonpartisan primary: Marquette Law School Professor Ed Fallone and incumbent Supreme Court Judge Daniel Kelly. Kelly was appointed to the state’s highest court by former Republican Gov. Scott Walker. The two top choices in the primary will meet again in the April 7 general election.
