WAUKESHA, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A mayor who refused to greet President Obama when he came to town in January lost his re-election bid yesterday. First-term Waukesha Mayor Jeff Scrima was overwhelmingly defeated by challenger Shawn Reilly, 62-to-38 percent. The opponent criticized Scrima for management problems and not taking part in city budget decisions. The mayor accused Reilly of campaigning only on "negativity and sarcasm." On January 30th, Scrima refused to attend an event at G-E Medical Systems in Waukesha where Obama spoke and Governor Scott Walker was in attendance. The mayor called the two "political extremists" who were not willing to compromise on major issues.

The mayoral contest was among almost four-thousand municipal, county board, and school board elections throughout Wisconsin yesterday. Voters in the Kettle Moraine district approved the state's largest school referendum. A nearly 50-million dollar package of technology, security, and maintenance items passed 53-to-47 percent out of almost five-thousand votes cast.
