Mark Nelson asked the Sturgeon Bay city council Tuesday to kick in $2500 to help send Door and Kewaunee County residents to Madison. Nelson has been an active participant in Door Kewaunee County Legislative Days since 2007. He asked the council to be a major sponsor again in 2019.
Approximately 130 people, including several students from Sturgeon Bay High School, participated in the last Door Kewaunee County Legislative Days in 2017.
Nelson calls the effort lobbying at its best.
Door County Legislative Days are held every two years. Nelson made the request so funding from the city can be included in the 2019 municipal budget.
