Voters in one La Crosse neighborhood might have three city elections in five weeks this winter.
The city council has scheduled a recall election for January 29th for Audrey Kader's 11th district seat. If more than two people decide to run, a second election will happen a month later...just a week after the regular spring primary. Recall organizers accuse Kader of trying to take away the public's right to speak at city meetings.
Candidates who want to challenge Kader have until this Wednesday to file papers with the city clerk's office.
