County Exec to Waukesha Clerk Kathy Nickolaus: Resign or hand off election duties

WAUKESHA- County Executive Dan Vrakas released the following statement today:

“In a meeting this afternoon I presented two options to Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus, resignation, or designating the Deputy Clerk to run the upcoming recall election.

Kathy agreed to hand off her election duties to the Deputy County Clerk in order to avoid my public call for her resignation.  In stepping aside, Kathy also agreed to allow outside consultants and county staff to work side-by-side with the Deputy Clerk to help restore confidence in our election process.

The County will move swiftly to examine the election night procedures in the County Clerk’s Office and make changes as necessary to restore public’s confidence in our elections.”
