With election day less than five weeks away, candidates for the Sturgeon Bay Common Council participated in a forum at City Hall Monday evening. The forum which was sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Door County afforded candidates the opportunity to address audience questions ranging from property taxes and the west side waterfront. League of Women Voters of Door County member Helen Bacon says the forum came at an important time for the community.
Participants in the forum included District 3 incumbent David Ward and challenger Martha-Scully-Beller, District 5 candidate Brian Peterson who will face write-in candidate Barb Allmann, District 7 candidates Laurel Hauser and Joe McMahon, and District 1 Incumbent Kelly Catarozoli and challenger Dan Wiegand, who was out of town and unable to attend the forum. The spring election will be Tuesday, April 4.
