Spiros and Kulp win reelection
By City Times staff
MARSHFIELD – John Spiros has won a fourth term in office. The Marshfield Republican was reelected to the 86th Assembly District seat he’s held since 2012. Spiros picked up 60 percent of the vote in holding off Democrat Nancy Stencil and Independent Michael Tauschek.
Spiros credited momentum from a republican primary in August that he said carried over to the general election.
“I think working hard in the primary, we had to get a jumpstart on that back in May, so all of the way through August we worked really hard and then we worked hard through the end,” Spiros said. “So, I really believe the primary probably was a catapult.”
Stencil picked up 37 percent of the vote, while Tauschek got 2.5 percent.
Bob Kulp has won another term in the 69th Assembly District. The Stratford Republican was officially running unopposed, although Kathleen Rulka of Marshfield had launched a write-in campaign.
Unofficial returns show Kulp with 92 percent of the vote, and write-ins getting 8 percent – 883 of those votes were cast in Rulka’s home city of Marshfield where 82 percent of the city’s 9,857 registered voters went to the polls on Nov. 6.
