Waupaca County’s newest judge took the official oath of office Monday. Well over 100 family members, former collegues, and current and retired judges wee on hand for the investiture of Judge Troy Nielson, who was elected in April to sit on the bench in Branch One of Waupaca County Circuit Court. Nielson took the oath from former Judge Phillip Kirk, who retired earlier this summer. And Nielson listened as former Waupaca County Judge John Hoffman imparted some wisdom……. Nielson joins current Waupaca County judges Ray Huber and Vicki Clussman on the bench. Judge Huber’s seat is up for re-election in 2018.
