Screnock Campaign: Submits Nomination Papers to Wisconsin Elections Commission
Campaign has gathered thousands of signatures from citizens across Wisconsin
(Reedsburg, Wis.) – The Screnock for Justice Campaign announced Friday it has submitted the maximum number of nomination signatures from citizens across Wisconsin to place Judge Michael Screnock on the ballot for Wisconsin’s open Supreme Court seat.
“Our campaign is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we’ve received from voters across Wisconsin,” said Sauk County Circuit Court Judge Michael Screnock. “In gathering our nomination signatures, our team has had thousands of conversations with folks across the Badger State who are eager to elect a justice to the state Supreme Court who believes in the rule of law, the Constitution, and the separation of powers.”
The Screnock for Justice Campaign submitted 4,000 signatures from counties in every part of the state. In addition, nearly 200 individuals assisted the campaign in gathering signatures.
Judge Michael Screnock was appointed to the Sauk County Circuit court in 2015 and ran unopposed for election in 2016. He has enjoyed the privilege of serving his hometown in this capacity, and is particularly proud of the work Sauk County’s Drug Court has accomplished since its inception last year.
Judge Screnock provides a unique perspective that will be a tremendous asset to the state’s highest court. He earned his undergraduate degree in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and received an MBA from Eastern College in Pennsylvania. He worked as a city administrator and as a finance director in the cities of Reedsburg, Washburn, and Ashland, Wisconsin before deciding to go back to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to pursue his Juris Doctor. He worked at Michael Best & Friedrich prior to becoming a judge.
Judge Michael Screnock lives in Reedsburg with his wife. They have three adult children.
