Governor Evers makes stop in Kewaunee County

On Thursday, Governor Tony Evers arrived in Algoma to meet with Mayor Wayne Schmidt and community leaders to discuss the shoreline conditions along Crescent Beach. Area leaders joined the governor for a walk along the boardwalk led by Sara Robertson, Algoma Parks and Recreation director, who spent time pointing out the projects Algoma has been working on, and the current condition of their beach. Schmidt, described the significance of Governor Evers’ visit.



The trip to Algoma was made in accordance with the "Imagine a Day Without Water" observance. This event also follows the announcement made earlier this year by Governor Evers, declaring September as Coastal Awareness Month in Wisconsin. However, Evers did state that the protection of our waters should not be reserved for September but instead be a year-round effort. After the walk on the boardwalk, Evers made his way to Luxemburg to have a conversation with a community member who was impacted by groundwater contamination. While he was in Kewaunee county, Governor Evers also presented a check to the Kewaunee County officials to help fund community well testing as a part of a grant from the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program.
