Sheriff Jeff Wolf is not seeking re-election
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Another candidate has officially entered the race for La Crosse County sheriff.

The investigations captain for the sheriff’s department, Siegel said he is running as a Democrat.
Siegel says he isn’t looking for change, but to improve.
“Our rural areas are continuing to grow. We have housing additions outside of Holmen, outside of West Salem. They want to have more presence, so figuring out how can we have that presence for them. Make sure that they feel safe,” Siegel said.
