I want to thank all of you who have helped and supported me through this campaign. I knew from the beginning that running against a 40 year incumbent would be far from easy. Though we did not get the results we were working for, all is not lost. I was able to do something I love to do, that is share my passion and vision for our community with our community. I was able to let residents know there are people who care and are willing to step up to make sure their voices are heard. I am also proud to say our campaign has inspired some who have never voted and have never understood the importance of local government to vote for the first time. That alone was worth the effort and work involved in running for office. I have gained many new relationships from this experience. Some of my friends who have never previously met were introduced for the first time, causing new friendships to form. So again I want to thank you. This truly has been a fruitful experience. If given the opportunity, I look forward to running again in 2018.

Wow, again no response from Guy Zima. I am disappointed with Guy's lack of engagement with his district. Part of the responsibility of a city alderperson and county supervisor is to help keep your constituents aware of what is going on in our local government. If I am wrong, then I want to go above and beyond what is required. Resident engagement is important to the effectiveness of local government.

Green Bay's next City Council will decide how to spend $5.4 million in excess stadium tax.

Zima, Peters face off in Brown Co. District 8

Thank you, Green Bay Press Gazette, for keeping the public informed. According to Guy, he doesn't believe many of his constituents are heavy Internet users. I believe a representative's constituents are not just the people who vote for you. A representative's constituent is anyone living within the representative's district. It is not just one group or one person who has a voice in what direction District 8 and Brown County head in. You all do. As, first and for most, a resident of our district I recognize the need for a representative who will foster growth, build bridges, and value the thoughts and concerns of it's residents. We also need someone with vision to help inspire and grow Brown County to a future that will bare fruit for the next generations. 40 years is quite the record, but being in politics shouldn't be about making records. Being in politics should be about serving you, doing everything possible to ensure Brown County is meeting your needs, not just the needs of those who vote for a particular candidate. It is my mission to provide you with representation you will not be embarrassed or ashamed of, but confident in. I leave you with one question when at the poles: How has our district changed from 40 years ago to where it is today?

Moving forward,
William Peters

Thank you Marquette Park Neighborhood Association for inviting me to speak at your meeting! A big concern for the residents that attended is the Brown County Library. The Brown County Library is vital to our community on many levels. I do not support budget cuts to our library system.

02/06/2016

Today I had the pleasure of visiting with the residents of Fort Howard Apartments. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to what issues concern those living there. I also enjoyed hearing their visions for our district. I am lucky to live in a district with such conscientious and proud residents.

Thank you Olde Norwood for inviting me to your neighborhood association meeting. It was a pleasure meeting all of you!

Start-up companies are fueling new jobs in Wisconsin, according to new study

I want to make sure Brown County continues to be a place that welcomes and fosters entrepreneurship. There is a feasibility study that has been put out which looks at creating a Brown County Research Park in Green Bay near the UWGB Campus. I will include a link to that study in the comment section of this post. The article below supports the importance and need for the Research Park.

Companies less than a year old accounted for all of Wisconsin’s net new job creation in 2012, according to a new study conducted by two University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers.

One of the keys to a vibrant and healthy community is making sure it's residents can safely walk, bike, and drive to where they need to go. I know there is more we can do for Brown County and Green Bay to make commuting more safe and effective for everyone. I encourage you to contact your local officials and share your suggestions and experiences on how to make Brown County more bike and pedestrian friendly. If for some reason you don't feel comfortable contacting your elected official, I will be more than happy to pass along your message.

Coming in 2016!

Residents of Brown County are invited to participate in the development of the Brown County Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Update scheduled to begin in 2016.

The MPO will be seeking public input throughout the plan process. Scheduled to be updated include the plan’s goals and objectives, recommendations, and other elements to meet existing design standards and reflect current state, county, and community bicycle and pedestrian priorities.

Additional information will be posted in early 2016.

For information regarding the plan, please contact Dan Teaters, Transportation/GIS Planner at [email protected].

I recently spoke with a board member of Green Bay's 42nd neighborhood association, Western Corridor. I can't express to you how proud I am to live in a city with such active neighborhoods! Green Bay stands out in this respect. We have even hosted officials from other cities in Wisconsin who want to learn from the example you are setting. It is truly the residents that make Green Bay and Brown County a great place to live, work, and play. Unlike some County Supervisors, I value the work you are doing to make our neighborhoods a safe and fun environment to live in. Neighborhood Associations are one of our best assets.

Wow! Heads up Green Bay, there will be a lot of names on the ballet for the primary in February. Your vote matters!
