Kewaunee 3rd District alderperson John Griffith announced hours before Tuesday’s filing deadline that he will drop his bid to become the city’s mayor. Griffith was one of the earliest to pick up and file his nomination papers, but began having second thoughts over the last week. In the end, Griffith believes he can have a larger impact as an alderperson than as mayor.
Griffith points to several projects such as the Marquette School demolition and the harbor redevelopment as potential exciting things for the city for which he wants to keep his vote. Kewaunee Mayor Sandi Christman, Joe Mills, and James Kleiman III remain in the fold for the term ahead of the filing deadline.
