I encourage Sturgeon Bay voters to elect David Ward as our next mayor on Tuesday, April 2.
Mr. Ward brings a wealth of experience and financial expertise to the Common Council table. David has been a member of the City Council since July of 2016, serving as alderman for district 3. He has chaired both the Finance and Personnel Committees. Mr. Ward is also a Sturgeon Bay Utilities Commissioner.
Furthermore, David Ward is a past board member and chair of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, focusing on three areas to boost the city’s economy: 1-improve our Internet services to better fulfill the demands of residents, businesses, and tourists, 2-maintain focus on the west side industrial park and shipyard to provide good paying jobs, and 3-support Sturgeon Bay’s position as a popular tourist destination.
David Ward’s additional qualifications for serious consideration as Sturgeon Bay’s next mayor include: 9 years as board member and finance chair of the Door County Memorial Hospital, and chair of the Church Council at the United Methodist Church.
Mr. Ward and his wife, Judy, have raised four children, having resided in Sturgeon Bay the past 18 years. His education credentials comprise a BBA, MBA, and PhD in Finance from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is both a former Finance Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, and UW-Oshkosh, as well as Administrator at central headquarters for the UW-System Administration. In addition, Mr. Ward is founder and president of NorthStar Analytic Consulting of Sturgeon Bay and Madison.
David Ward’s priorities for Sturgeon Bay are simple, and yet comprehensive: better streets, affordable housing, attracting new retail, and maintaining and enhancing our city parks.
As we move forward as a community, I truly believe that we need the vision and ability Mr. David Ward possesses. I strongly urge you to vote for David Ward for mayor, Tuesday, April 2, 2019.
