Excerpt: A recall effort that resulted in the ousting of eight Monroe County supervisors (7 is also confirmed here) last fall may serve as a springboard to the State Assembly for one rural Sparta man.
Dennis Clinard, chairman of the Monroe County Taxpayers Relief Committee (MCTRC), will announce his candidacy for the 92nd District Assembly seat in Black River Falls and Tomah Friday.
Clinard was instrumental in forming the MCTRC, which successfully recalled eight incumbent supervisors who supported a proposed $30 million justice center.
Clinard, who will run on the Republican ticket, is seeking to oust incumbent 92nd District Rep. Mark Radcliffe of Black River Falls.
Radcliffe currently serves on the following Assembly standing committees: Agriculture, Education, Renewable Energy and Rural Affairs, and Aging and Long-Term Care.
