The two candidates for Sturgeon Bay mayor had a chance to state their case during a forum Tuesday night at a packed City Hall. David Ward and Shawn Fairchild fielded submitted questions from the public and those in attendance for ninety minutes. The westside waterfront development was a major question that elicited two different visions by the candidates. Fairchild says public access is a key to any development once the Ordinary High Water Mark ruling is final.
Ward says private development will be crucial to the success of any westside growth on the waterfront factoring in the Tax Incremental District (TID).
The 19 questions ranged from how to encourage better civility on the city council to providing more affordable housing. The election is Tuesday, April 2. You can watch the video of Tuesday’s mayoral forum that was sponsored by the Door County League of Women Voters with the link below.
