Former Rock County Sheriff Howard Erickson is a spokesman for the grassroots group of neighbors, business owners and friends who got together to share concerns about the town’s leadership….
The group’s frustrations center around five lawsuits pending in federal court against the town and its police chief, John Wilson. The suits claim Wilson made racial slurs and based his decisions in racist ideals. The claims also state Wilson retaliated against police officers who said his behavior was inappropriate.
The group also is frustrated with the town leadership in dealing with the situation, Erickson said.
