One of the most outspoken opponents of the PRAT referendum will be taking a seat on Sturgeon Bay’s City Council starting April 17th. David Hayes defeated Bob Starr in District 2, while voters in Sturgeon Bay also voted to pass the PRAT with a 70% approval rate. Now that the referendum has passed Hayes says his experience in Washington D.C., can help clarify the language of the bill.
Hayes also says the PRAT will be one of his biggest projects, along with the redevelopment of the west side waterfront and figuring out what to do the dirt piles. Hayes defeated Starr 227 votes to 213.
