Crandon’s soon-to-be mayor is set to take the oath of office Friday.
Dennis Rosa was elected in a recall vote Tuesday, in which he won two thirds of the votes and beat out incumbent mayor Rob Jaeger.
City clerk Cindy Bradley says after a recall, there’s a mandatory three day window that allows for a recount if vote totals are close, which they aren’t in this case. Then the new mayor can take over.
There will be just two candidates to choose from when Crandon residents vote in a recall election for mayor on Tuesday July 29th.
Citing political differences, a citizen gathered over 200 signatures on a petition asking for a recall of Crandon Mayor Rob Jaeger.
But there was some confusion as to whether it would actually happen, when last week the City Council voted not to call for an election.
Spokesperson for the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board Reid Magney says it wasn’t optional.
