— A former Janesville City Council member will run an 11th hour write-in campaign for U.S. Congressional District 1.

Greg Addie will run as an Independent and faces incumbent Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Marge Krupp, D-Wis.


Addie’s primary motivation for the campaign is the recent financial institution bailout, according to his news release. Addie also supports term limits for legislators, he told The Janesville Gazette this morning.


Addie, 49, of 2708 Omaha Drive, Janesville, was elected to city council in 2003 and served two terms.


In 2006, Addie unsuccessfully ran as a Republican against incumbent Judy Robson, D-Beloit, for Wisconsin Senate District 15.


Addie founded Integrity Water Solutions, 1950 North Wisconsin St., Elkhorn, in 2004. Previously he worked for family-owned Addie Water Systems, Janesville, for 13 years, he said.
