Two items on the agenda for Tuesday's Door County Board of Supervisors meeting come from the Legislative Committee. Chair Bob Bultman says he is particularly passionate about the first topic. The resolution expresses support for the repair proposal put forth by the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society for the Potawatomi Tower. Bultman says it mirrors actions taken by the Town of Nasewaupee and the City of Sturgeon Bay. Representative Joel Kitchens has also endorsed the project in the State Assembly. Bultman says that when you compare the tower restoration to alternatives that have been used at other area landmarks, support is justified.
The Board of Supervisors will also be looking at a resolution to condemn systemic racism. Bultman says that topic has been a prominent discussion point in the Legislative Committee for months. The goal is to have something that matters, and adoption could result in administrative changes at the county level. The resolution stops short of calling for a new committee dedicated to the issue.
