A Fond du Lac attorney has had his ballot status denied as he attempts to join the race for what will be an open Waupaca County judgeship. Dennis Krueger of Green Lake got his nominating papers into the state elections commission Tuesday afternoon, ahead of the 5 pm deadline. But Krueger’s ballot status was denied today. Reid Magney, the spokesperson for the elections commission, says Krueger failed to put the election date on his nominating petitions, as is required by law. Magney says Krueger can appeal the staff’s decision to the elections commission next week. A message left with Krueger Tuesday seeking comment about a possible appeal has not been returned.
