Wausau council candidate forced to run as write-in

by

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- If you ever run for public office, remember to get more nomination signatures than you absolutely must have.

That’s a lesson learned the hard way this week for a challenger to a Wausau City Council seat. Guy Wieseler turned in his nomination papers on time Tuesday, but he only turned in twenty-one signatures. That’s one more than the minimum required. City staff members discovered that five of Wieseler’s supporters did not live in his district, which made his application invalid.

Wieseler will now have to run as a write-in candidate in the April 1st election.

He is challenging incumbent David Nutting in District 3.
