Two candidates are running for the position of interim chairperson of the Town of Spider Lake in a recall election Tuesday, Aug. 11. The fall 2020 primary election also is being held that day throughout Sawyer County and Wisconsin.

The recall election was authorized after 71 town residents signed a petition citing various allegations related to incumbent chairman John Leighton’s official duties. The allegations and Leighton’s responses to them were detailed in the June 17 and June 24 issues of the Record.
