As quoted in Scott Fitzgerald wants to bar county executives from Legislature. (Madison.com, 2/2/2016)
The bill requires that Mark Harris, Democratic candidate for the 18th Senate district*, resign as Winnebago County Executive if elected to the state office.
Fitzgerald simply adds to the stinking, ever-increasing pile of Republican hypocrisy.
This holding of 2 elected offices was not an issue when Bob Ziegelbauer simultaneously served in the State Assembly and as Manitowoc County Executive from April 2006 through the end of 2012.
(*Rick Gudex, a Republican from Fond du Lac, has since announced that he is not running for re-election.)
