You could find Sturgeon Bay Mayor David Ward back on the ballot next spring after he announced his intentions to run for re-election on Monday. Ward defeated Shawn Fairchild in the 2019 spring election after serving two-and-a-half years on the Sturgeon Bay Common Council representing the city’s third district. He noted that the city has had many positive accomplishments in the last three years, which have been dominated by the pandemic. Ward hopes to continue working with residents and the Common Council to achieve more in the future.
The announcement comes two weeks before candidates for the spring election can begin circulating nomination papers on December 1st. Candidates must file those nomination papers by January 4th.
