Updated 3/26/2018:

The MCLA forum ‘Meet the Candidates’ took place on Thursday, the 22nd of March, 2018 with BOB ZIEGELBAUER and ERIC SITKIEWITZ.

The Manitowoc County Executive arguably has the highest ability to affect the conditions and quality of the area’s waters. On March 22, candidates for the position conducted a listening session, answered questions, and stated their respective qualifications. Each focused on proposals that would support the Manitowoc County Lakes Association mission, to protect and enhance the quality of area lakes and watersheds. This was a great opportunity to meet and to take your measure of the projected policies of these two individuals.

The Herald Tribune Reporter published a summary article on the 23rd of March, 2018. Some main points are:

  • Bob Ziegelbauer and Eric Sitkiewitz faced challenging questions about water quality and environmental concerns.
  • Both agreed that economic growth and the health of ecosystems are connected
  • Beaches have had to be closed due to high levels of E-Coli, affecting tourism negatively.
  • Although both candidates stated that cities from outside the area were responsible for the degraded water quality, it was pointed out that the Manitowoc River is the highest source of the pollutant phosphorous.
  • We need to bolster the County Soil and Water Conservation Department to address locally contributions to polluted waters.
