Only one candidate in special Sauk County Board election

January 4, 2019

A special April election in the Sauk County Board’s 12th supervisory district will feature only one candidate.

Sauk County Clerk Becky Evert said incumbent Supervisor Ross Curry, who was appointed to the seat in November, was the only person to file candidacy papers by Wednesday evening’s deadline.

The seat became vacant in October after David Moore, a Wisconsin Dells pastor who had served on the board since April 2014, resigned to accept a position with an Oklahoma church.

Curry was the only person to apply for appointment to the vacant seat and was selected by Sauk County Board Chairman Peter Vedro of Baraboo.

In November, the board confirmed Curry’s appointment and voted to hold a special election in April.

The county board’s 12th district includes Wards 4, 8 and 10 in the city of Wisconsin Dells; Ward 3 in the village of Lake Delton; and Wards 1 and 2 in the town of Delton.

Curry works as a painting contractor and is a lifelong town of Delton resident. He also has experience as a member of town’s planning and zoning committee, a church board member, an election inspector and a volunteer for various organizations, including Habitat for Humanity.
