Leading the Sturgeon Bay City Council through the three past years has Mayor David Ward reflecting on the transition from infighting and dealing with challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, to the significant accomplishments in the past year. Ward shares the improvements he is excited about in the city for 2022.
A career in finance, education, and the University of Wisconsin administrative system served Ward well before his voyeur into politics. Ward spent most of his career as a finance professor at UW-Green Bay and UW-Oshkosh before becoming the Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs for the entire University of Wisconsin System. Moving to Sturgeon Bay in 2000, Ward was elected mayor of Sturgeon Bay in 2019, after being appointed to the City Council in July of 2017.
