Borchardt being challenged by Rollin for Brown County District 8
By Press Times Staff
BROWN COUNTY – Incumbent Megan Borchardt is being challenged for her District 8 seat on the Brown County Board of Supervisors by political newcomer Kimber Rollin on the April 5 ballot.
District 8 consists of parts of west Green Bay and Ashwaubenon.
The Press Times emailed each candidate the same question: What do you see as the most important issue facing Brown County and District 8, and if elected, how will you address it?
Each candidate had 200 words to respond.
Challenger Rollin asked to be removed from the candidate questionnaire email, and did not respond.
A: The No. 1 issue is a tight budget.
The key is striking a balance between providing efficient county services and not overburdening the taxpayer – taking a deep dive into those budgets, finding inefficiencies in all departments and where we can save money.
Our current administration does a good job of this, but I believe we can also seek grants that can help us save money as well.
I would also like to see more community collaborations with nonprofits that may be doing some of the same work.
As an example, the Brown County Housing and Homeless Coalition works with Brown County Health and Human Services to strengthen the needs of our community.
It is also important to have an engaged representative.
As the current District 8 supervisor, I attend multiple meetings and sit on a number of county-appointed boards and community boards.
This allows me to help answer questions that any community member may have, or direct them to the person that would be best able to help them.
You’re getting the best bang for your buck when you have someone who is engaged in our community.
