(WORT)–Bob Jambois, an Assistant District Attorney for Dane County, recently announced he will take on his boss, Ismael Ozanne, for the position of Dane County District Attorney in this August’s Democratic primary election.
Ozanne became the county’s first African American DA when he was appointed by Governor Jim Doyle back in 2010.
But Jambois is pulling no punches in challenging Ozanne for his seat. Jambois has called the DA’s office “dysfunctional, demoralized, and disorganized” and accused his opponent of shirking his prosecutorial responsibilities. On Monday, the Jambois campaign announced it had submitted open records requests to find out whether the DA has been regularly swiping in for work.
No Republican candidates have registered to run for the DA seat, so the results of the August 9th primary between the two Democrats will be decisive.
