Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker appointed Melinda (Mindy) Tempelis (MPA, JD ’02) as Outagamie County’s district attorney.

Bryan Gadow (’05 MPA) received the Richard B. Schmied Leadership Award from the Green County Development Corporation (GCDC) on April 25. Schmied, who served as president of the New Glarus Village Board, was president of the GCDC when he passed away in 2000.

Two La Follette School alumni – Carolyn Clow and Bradley Campbell – are seeking election in their local communities. Clow is running for the McFarland Village Board, and Campbell hopes to join La Follette alumna Sara Eskrich on the Madison City Council.

In a recent article on Madison’s diverse 13th Aldermanic District, The Cap Times highlighted the work of Sara Eskrich (MPA/MPH ’15), who has represented the district since April 2015.
