Dan Williams, retired Director of the Door County Emergency Medical Service, is running for a seat on the Sturgeon Bay City Council. Williams began circulating petitions this week for the Third District seat now held by David J. Ward, who is running for Sturgeon Bay’s mayoral seat. Williams believes his extensive business background would benefit the council and Sturgeon Bay residents.
So far, Williams is the only candidate to take out nominating papers in the Third District. No candidates have taken out petitions in the First District and the Seventh District. Incumbent Fifth District council member Barbara Allmann has taken out nominating papers. She faces a challenge from Gary Nault. All city council and mayoral candidates must have their petitions filed with the Sturgeon Bay City Clerk/Human Resources office by January 2nd.
