Empty Seventh District Council Seat Draws Applicants
It's six for seven in La Crosse. Six people have applied to fill the seat for the vacant seventh district council seat, including one guy who used to sit in that seat on the council and another former council member. Jim Bloedorn was the seventh district council member a couple of years back but didn't run when he opted on a campaign for mayor instead. Jacie Gamroth is the former fifth district council member who now lives in the seventh district. Also applying for the seat are Bob Haavind, Richard Staff, Tim Marshall and Justin Fons. The seventh district council seat was recently vacated by Mike Larsen after apparently suffering some health problems. The person appointed will have to run in April to keep the seat.
