New Kewaunee council member excited for larger role

Kewaunee's newest city council member Robin Nelson has often been discussing what's going on in her community, but now she'll get to be part of the decision-making. Nelson says that several people have asked her to run for the city council or school board, but she declined. Last fall, with the help of a man who noticed her work on the lighthouse committee, Nelson shared that she sought a role to be more clearly heard.



Nelson also recalled giving presentations at council meetings, and then having to sit and listen to the conversation. Now she is relieved she will get to have a say. Nelson said she respects the government process and is honored and humbled that the people of her district want her to serve them. Nelson was also well aware of the challenges that come with beating an incumbent, as she defeated Joe Mills in Tuesday’s race. Nelson looks forward to being representative of the people and bringing their voice to the council meeting, and hopes to be able to lend creative ideas. Her website lists road repair and maintenance of infrastructure as priorities.
