Wells Fargo manager former Badger and Alaskan


Aaron Habermann, the new store manager of the Wells Fargo Bank in downtown Hudson, shouldn't have any trouble making conversation with customers.

The Hartland native was a reserve defensive end on the University of Wisconsin football teams that won back-to-back Rose Bowl games in 1999 and 2000.

He comes to Hudson from Palmer, Alaska, a town 10 miles away from Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's hometown of Wasilla.
