HUDSON — A pair of sitting St. Croix County justices are running unopposed on next Tuesday’s Spring ballot.
Judge Eric Lundell and Judge Howard W. Cameron are seeking re-election to the Circuit Court judgeships of St. Croix County in the April 1 election.
This will be the 14th time that Judge Eric Lundell has sought election or re-election in St. Croix County.
Lundell was twice elected to the city council in New Richmond and ran successfully seven times for St. Croix County’s District Attorney. He will be seeking his fifth term as Branch 1 Circuit Court judge.
Judge Lundell currently serves as the presiding judge for St. Croix County, having been appointed to that position by Chief Judge Scott Needham several years ago.
Lundell is married to Laurel Nelson-Lundell and lives in the Town of Hudson. He has a son and daughter and a stepson as well as two grandchildren.
Lundell has served the residents of St. Croix County since 1974.
Judge Howard W. Cameron has served in the St. Croix County Circuit Court for the past six years.
Since taking the bench in 2008, Judge Cameron has handled a variety of cases from juvenile delinquency to homicides. In 2011, he instituted a foreclosure mediation program in the county. He also assists with the St. Croix County drug court.
Judge Cameron was elected to the Uniform Bond Committee at the Wisconsin Judicial Conference in 2009 and has served as chair the past year. The Bond Committee prepares a statewide uniform bail and bond schedule for misdemeanors and forfeitures.
Prior to his election to the bench in 2008, Judge Cameron worked as a public defender attorney for 17 years and was a high school teacher for six years in Spooner, WI.
Cameron lives in the Town of Hudson with his wife, Teresa, who recently retired after 36 years of teaching. The couple has one daughter who is a senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
