Return of the Enigma

by on September 29th, 2009

With one post on the WDH forum, it appears that Carl “gets more done by accident than you do on purpose, jack” Kluz is returning to behind the scenes work in local politics. His forum post clearly signaled a desire to work on council elections again.

This appears in an article about 400 Block Fundraising…

“Only 201 days until the next city council elections on April 6, 2010.
Anyone wanting to run for local office as a taxpayer advocate may contact me at [email protected] and you will have all the help you need.”

I have met Carl one time, and we talked for hours. I learned a lot, there is no other way to say that. I learned a lot from my lunch with Carl. Carl is information packed, like a good soy stir fry is packed with dense nutrition. He gave me a lot of information, a lot of his perspective, and I was left swimming after he was done.

For those of you who do not know, Carl has been a part of the last few mayoral elections. He worked hand in hand with Linda Lawrence during her run, then he switched teams and helped current Mayor Jim Tipple get elected.

Carl was also allegedly responsible for a post on the WDH forum that led to increased security at City Council meetings.

Carl has told me, and others have confirmed, that he was very pivotal in getting both Mayors Tipple and Lawrence elected. His hard work and tireless support of the electoral process is what makes Carl one of the go to people for certain candidate types, and he responds by being very selective of the people he works for.

Rumors have it that both print newspapers have tried to contact Kluz to seek out what his plans are, and these same rumors have Kluz rebuffing all requests for interviews.

It appears that Kluz has come out of “retirement” and is getting back in the game of Wausau Council politics. I am not sure if this is a good thing either for Carl or for the council, but it appears he is back.
