Waukesha Clerk Nickolaus Vows to Use Rest of Her Term to Restore Voter’s Confidence
She’s in it for the long haul.
Patriot Kathy Nickolaus held a news conference last week to announce that she missed over 10,000 county votes in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race.
Nickolaus told reporters this kind of mistake was “common in the process.”
Today Kathy Nickolaus vowed that she would use the rest of her term to restore the voter’s confidence.
The Waukesha County clerk is rejecting calls for her resignation.
County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus, who botched her count of last week’s Wisconsin Supreme Court race, apologized again Tuesday afternoon but said she has no plans to step down.
“I will serve the remainder of my term,” Nickolaus said. “I understand why people are upset and I am taking this matter seriously. Again, I am sorry for my mistake.”
And she said she would use the rest of her term to restore voters’ confidence in her.
“I have immediately begun the process of reviewing my procedures,” with the Government Accountability Board and Waukesha County auditor, she said.
The chairman of Waukesha County’s Democratic Party began calling for Nickolaus to resign Tuesday in the wake of revelations that she had failed to include any votes from Brookfield in the totals she reported to the Associated Press.
