Two candidates will be on the ballot for the job of Crandon MayorSubmitted: 07/02/2014
Story By Newswatch 12 Newsteam

CRANDON - Two candidates will be on the ballot for the job of Crandon Mayor.

That's after a petition forced a recall election.

Incumbent Mayor Rob Jaeger will automatically be included.

Dennis Rosa will also be on the ballot.

Crandon Clerk Cindy Bradley says Rosa was the only candidate to turn in papers to get on the ballot by yesterday's deadline.

Last month, Crandon's city clerk got more than 200 valid signatures on a recall petition.

That's more than the 152 needed to order a recall election.

At first, the city council was reluctant to set the election, with a first vote ending in a 4-4 tie.

Later the council approved the election, which will take place July 29th.
