Christie Weber is calling her efforts to recall Sturgeon Bay Mayor Thad Birmingham a parallel effort as the Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront and the city prepare to begin another round of negotiations to resolve the west waterfront dispute. Weber announced her intention to recall the mayor after the Sturgeon Bay Common Council voted to pursue bids to potentially tear down the granary and ask the Wisconsin State Legislature to declare the ordinary high water mark for the west side waterfront development. There were a few reasons why Weber felt the need to organize an effort to collect the 1,000 signatures needed to begin the recall process.
When asked about the potential for a recall against him, Birmingham told DoorCountyDailyNews.com that he “does not think Christie likes him.” The city of the Sturgeon Bay and the Friends of the Sturgeon Bay Public Waterfront are expected to begin negotiations on a settlement in Madison on Monday.
