Missed by just a block

We are hearing that one of the favored candidates for county supervisor lives outside the district they want to represent.  
Per Wisconsin Statute Section 59.20 (1) eligibility for county office, “no person may file nomination papers as a candidate for, have his or her name placed on a ballot for election to, or hold a county elective office who is not an elector of the county. No person may file nomination papers as a candidate for, have his or her name placed on a ballot for election to, or hold the office of county supervisor who is not an elector of the supervisory district from which he or she is chosen.”  A candidate for county supervisor will have to have lived in the supervisory district for which he or she is seeking office for at least 28 days prior to filing the nomination papers with the Office of the Election Commission.
He used the old map to determine which district he was in.  Maybe he should have run for alderman instead.
