Ex-Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus named to Town of Waukesha post
Former Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus has been appointed to a three-year term as the clerk-treasurer for the Town of Waukesha, the Freeman reports.
The town had two clerk-treasurers resign in close succession. The Town Board met in closed session Thursday night to appoint Nickolaus, according to the Freeman.
Nickolaus came under fire in 2011 when she reported that she had failed to count City of Brookfield results, resulting in a statewide recount of the Supreme Court race that ultimately found Justice David Prosser defeated challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg.
A year later reporting problems plagued election night tallies in April 2012.
