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.
