Door County racism resolution tabled

Tuesday's lengthy Door County Board of Supervisors meeting featured disagreement on several topics, but only one issue caused tempers to flare. Chairman Dave Lienau gaveled the panel back into order after a recess to run through the various resolutions before the board. He began the discussion by announcing that the item identifying racism as a public health crisis would be tabled until November 10th. The motion passed with 18 in favor against two nays. District Four Supervisor Kara Counard wanted a reason for the delay to be entered into the minutes. Lienau responded that she was out of order.


Lienau said that he planned to have multiple speakers address the board on November 10th to educate members on systemic racism when he introduced the resolution. No further details were provided.


The other item originating from the Legislative Committee was far less contentious. A resolution supporting the Sturgeon Bay Historical Society plan to repair the Potawatomi State Park tower passed unanimously, 20-0.
