Kuspik told the Regional News of his candidacy on Monday. Kupsik also served two terms on the Walworth County Board.

Locally, he was a member of the Lake Geneva Board of Park Commissioners for 12 years and also served on the Walworth County zoning committee. According to the state Government Accountability Board, Doug Harrod, W1815 County Road B, Genoa City, has also filed for the Democratic nomination in the 32nd District.

The primary election is Aug. 12.

Incumbent State Rep. Tyler August, R-Lake Geneva, announced his 2014 re-election campaign April 14. August was first elected to the Wisconsin State Assembly in 2010. He was re-elected in 2012.

Nomination papers were first accepted April 15. The filing deadline is 5 p.m. June 2.
