Sauk County Board approves gerrymandering referendum

Judy Brey of Reedsburg Area Concerned Citizens, a progressive activist group, on Tuesday night encourages members of the Sauk County Board to approve an advisory referendum on redistricting reform.

Sauk County voters will be asked this fall whether they want state lawmakers to create a nonpartisan procedure for redrawing political districts.

The Sauk County Board voted 21-10 Tuesday night to conduct a countywide advisory referendum on the matter in the Nov. 6 election. Supervisors who voted against placing the question on local ballots were as follows:

• District 1 Supervisor Wally Czuprynko of Lake Delton

• District 3 Supervisor Chuck Whitsell of Wisconsin Dells

• District 8 Supervisor John Deitrich of Reedsburg

• District 9 Supervisor Tommy Lee Bychinski of Reedsburg

• District 10 Supervisor Marty Krueger of Reedsburg

• District 12 Supervisor David Moore of Wisconsin Dells

• District 21 Supervisor Chuck Spencer of Baraboo

• District 25 Supervisor Brian Peper of Loganville

• District 26 Supervisor Brandon Lohr of Prairie du Sac

• District 30 Supervisor Donna Stehling of Sauk City
