Algoma City Council Member Kevin Schmidt enjoys serving the community and seeks to keep his 1st Aldermanic District seat in April. Schmidt is a lifelong resident of Algoma and has served on the council for four terms, the last three terms in this district of the city. He has volunteered for the local fire department, is on the rescue squad and is currently a full-time sheriff’s deputy with Kewaunee County. As Schmidt enters his ninth year, he expresses his enjoyment of being of service in the community.
Schmidt says that he is proud of the steady growth of Algoma since the housing crunch and looks to continue his work in the city and in his role as chair of the Parks and Recreation committee. One of the recent projects that he has been pleased to support is an ice rink that opened last year with the financial backing of the Green Bay Packers and other local organizations. Looking forward, Schmidt expresses his desire to keep taxes down and help with improvements in Algoma public areas for residents and visitors to enjoy in all seasons.
