With the spring election in the rearview mirror, newly elected Washington Island Chairperson Hans Lux is turning his eyes to the future. Lux was a town supervisor on Washington Island before defeating Richard Tobey 255-188 on Tuesday. Residents got a preview of the type of communication he would like to have with residents moving forward in late December as the Island experienced a surge in COVID-19 cases. Lux says he wanted to become the Washington Island Chairperson so residents could feel more involved with the decision-making.
Lux cites the town’s infrastructure as a challenge moving forward. He would like to create a strategic plan of three, five, and ten years to give potential projects some direction and goals while getting more people involved.
