State upholds clerk's decision on mayoral ballot
The Wisconsin Election Commission has upheld Rhinelander city clerk Val Foley's decision to keep mayoral candidate Christopher Frederickson's name off the spring ballot.

Frederickson was deemed ineligible to be on the ballot after his opponent, alderman Alex Young, filed a formal complaint alleging technical errors made 56 of the 75 signatures collected in support of Frederickson's candidacy invalid, leaving him with less than the required 50 valid signatures.

According to state law, nomination papers are to be dated after signatures are collected, however in the case of some of Frederickson's paperwork the pages were dated before the signatures were collected.

Another mayoral candidate, Scott Counter, made the same error and Young challenged those papers as well. After reviewing the challenges, city clerk Val Foley removed both men's names from the ballot, leaving Young as the only official candidate.
