THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
2 Area Men Were Also Candidates
Two men from Coleman were also candidates in contested races in other state municipalities on Tuesday, Aug. 12.
Adam Bieber, son of Dennis and Lana Bieber of Coleman, won the Republican nomination for Shawano County Sheriff defeating the two time incumbent Randy Wright.
Brandon Rosner of Coleman, lost a close race for the Republic nomination for the State Assembly District 97 seat from Waukesha. He received 1,714 votes or 29 percent, to Scott Allen who received 2,003 votes or 34 percent. Rosner was among six candidates seeking the nomination and is the son of John and Kim Rosner of Coleman. The six way race was developed when the incumbent Bill Kramer was involved in a highly publicized scandal causing him to resign.
Adam Bieber, a Shawano police officer, pulled an upset victory by more than a 200 vote margin. Wright was first elected in 2006 and re-elected in 2010. He will face the Independent nominee Lucas Christenson of Shawano, who works in parts department for a marine and motor sports firm, in the Nov. 4 general election.
Bieber has been in law enforcement for 14 years and is a member of the Shawano Police Department since 2003. His campaign had drawn considerable news since he shared the same last name of singer Justin Bieber.
Adam Bieber is a 1977 graduate of Coleman High School and resides in Shawano with his wife Amy and three sons.
Brandon Rosner is a 1998 graduate of Coleman High School and Milwaukee School of Engineering in 2002. He ran the 2006 campaign of John Gard and served in the health care sector Gov. Scott Walker. His wife, Dr. Keren, is a family physician for Aurora Health Care in Milwaukee and the couple has one daughter.
