Why should people vote for you? 

Communication. As De Pere Clerk-Treasurer for seven years, I am knowledgeable in all aspects of City government. As a resident, I am passionate about De Pere for the same reasons you are: historic downtown, great restaurants and shops, beautiful neighborhoods and parks, and excellent schools, to name a few. I am committed to community engagement and being a voice for District One residents at the Council Level. I also hope to find new ways to engage residents in thoughtful decision making. Please contact me at shanafordepere@gmail.com or 920-333-1663. I look forward to talking with you.

What’s the biggest issue in the City of De Pere?

Growth is critical for De Pere to continue to be a quality of life leader. But growth also comes with a nervousness that our community may lose the small-town feel that is authentically De Pere. I know we can have both and believe that actively listening to residents, business owners and community leaders will help achieve both goals while forwarding projects like the Mulva Cultural Center. We also need to work collectively to address traffic on Broadway and Main and further the Southern Bridge Project in order to improve traffic congestion and pedestrian safety and connectivity.

How will you help to continue the growth of downtown?

Our family loves living here and spending time in Downtown De Pere. A healthy downtown is key to a strong community, and it’s critical that we pay special attention to Downtown De Pere. The Cultural District Masterplan sets a vision that promotes growth while maintaining the City’s historic character, and City leaders must make the plan a reality. We need to proactively plan for the increase in visitors and activity that will come from the Mulva Cultural Center. We also need to support public infrastructure and events that expand the rich experience residents and visitors enjoy in our historic City.
