After collecting enough signatures and turning his nomination papers in on Monday, Spencer Gustafson is looking forward to having his name on the April 7th ballot for District 4 in Sturgeon Bay. The 25-year-old Gustafson works as a Digital Media Specialist for the state of Wisconsin and moved back to Door County from Madison in April. He says the last Sturgeon Bay Common Council election sparked his interest in running for the aldermanic seat.
Gustafson says the west side waterfront development and the funding for streets are still two key issues facing the city. Current District 4 councilmember Kelly Avenson has taken out papers for re-election but has not turned them in as of Monday.
