No charge against official with sand mine interest

Posted: Updated:

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) - No charges will be filed against a Trempealeau County Board supervisor who was investigated because of his financial interest in a sand mining company.

Another supervisor filed a complaint against David Suchla. She claimed Suchla advocated using county-owned land for silica sand production to benefit his business partners.

Sally Miller's complaint didn't cite examples of Suchla trying to influence colleagues on sand matters. But Miller said she believed he used "promises of favors, threats of political retribution and just plain bullying."

The La Crosse Tribune reports that in a decision released Thursday, La Crosse County District Attorney Tim Gruenke wrote that Suchla has not voted on matters relating to his corporation on the county attorney's advice.

Suchla told The Associated Press that the complaint was made "for political reasons."
