Political newcomers Kendrick, Antonneau vie for Brown County District 1
By Press Times Staff
BROWN COUNTY – For the first time in a decade, Brown County District 1 residents will have a new representative on the County Board, with Tom Seiber not running for reelection.
Ronald Antonneau and Tristan Kendrick will face off April 5.
The Press Times asked each candidate the same question and gave them each 200 words to respond.
What do you see as the most important issue facing the City of Green Bay and District 2, and if elected, how will you address it?
Antonneau did not respond to the questionnaire sent to him.
A: Environmental deterioration, crippled infrastructure, lack of public safety and the exploitation of workers are the problems facing Brown County.
I hear you, and we will work to solve these issues together.
We need to preserve and maintain what we have.
As supervisor, I will push to invest the influx of state and federal funding into projects that will fix our crumbling roads and bridges.
I will also continue to support conservation projects that will clean and protect our environmental assets including the Fox River, the Bay of Green Bay and other areas from further deterioration.
Making those investments are my top priorities.
Secondly, I believe that everyone deserves to feel safe and comfortable in their homes and jobs.
Our law enforcement should not have to spend their valuable time pursuing marijuana offenses.
It is time to decriminalize cannabis, so that they may focus on protecting our communities from the more urgent threats.
I will also continue to support the growing unionization movement so we may end the exploitation of our most essential workers: teachers, first responders and all hourly employees.
These people deserve our attention and support.
Brown County is our home.
Let’s come together and make it better.
