The new alderman for district three in Sturgeon Bay is diving head first into his new position.
Ed Ireland was elected to the third district seat in April, replacing John Lodl. Ireland says his first month on the job has been quite busy.
Mayor Thad Birmingham has appointed Ireland to six committees and Ireland says he's ready to serve his constituents and the city.
In the past Ireland has served the city on the zoning board of appeals, and helped investigate the early waterfront development among other things. Ireland worked in food service and accounting throughout his lifetime, but now that he's retired he wanted to take his involvement with the city to a new level.
