From Our Readers...

Issue Date: March 17, 2022

Dear Editor:

Mayor Malke,

Thank you for your continued support and proactive care you show for the small businesses here in Peshtigo. You have proven to be a positive force in our City and are always working hard to improve things for the benefit of all of us whether we have a business in town or not. I admire your drive to get things done as you put effort in your work to move things forward. It is apparent that your position in the City is not an easy one, anybody that might think otherwise is sorely mistaken.

Nobody can satisfy everybody or anybody all the time when it comes to your position, but I appreciate the fact that you are only trying to make things better for us.

I have been in business in 3 different cities in my past, all of them could learn how to better carry out their job from you. Thank you for your work on our behalf over the years of your service here in Peshtigo, hopefully you will be able to continue in your position as this would be a great benefit for our community,

Eric Anderson

CRM Corp.



Dear Editor:

April 5th will provide us with the opportunity to re-elect a dedicated, trusted, and experienced Alderperson to the City Council. Dorothy Kowalski, our current Alderperson-at-large, brings integrity, passion, and perseverance when representing all of the people of Marinette.

Having had the privilege of serving on City Council with Dorothy for many years, I know how important it is to her to always be prepared, informed, and willing to look at all aspects while decision making. She has the knowledge of how city government runs and the very important ability to work with other council members. The time and effort that Dorothy invests show her commitment to seeing Marinette continue to thrive and welcome business and industry.

Dorothy has been instrumental in many positive accomplishments for Marinette including the Community Rec Center, Pine Tree Mall revitalization, affordable housing (Trolley Station), and the Menekaunee Harbor development. Her 38 years as a respected educator, coach, and volunteer within our community add to her unique set of qualifications for this position.

Please continue to support your proven leader and give Dorothy Kowalski your vote on April 5th.

Thank you.

John Marx

Marinette



Dear Editor:

Dear Cathi Malke,

I'm writing this letter to compliment you on the many things you have done for the City of Peshtigo since becoming our Mayor. Thank you for seeking out and obtaining grants that have helped shape our city with these cost saving grants over the years.

You have worked with people who have started new businesses especially trying to fill the empty buildings around the city.

The City of Peshtigo has an excellent school system as well as Police and Fire Departments which are available when we need help. Our city Crew is fantastic with snow and leaf removal! The new Recycle and Garbage automated system seems to be working very well. It's amazing how easily these bins can be tipped and rolled into position at the street. I see the city truck picking up our garbage with one worker instead of the usual 3 which is freeing up more workers to catch up on other work around the city giving us more Service!

Our Badger Park keeps thriving and looks in excellent shape, What a compliment for our visitors!

By the hard work done by yourself and our Council members, our taxes have remained steady (not raised).

You have an open "ear' when we have questions or in need of direction. Thank you for listening closely to our concerns.

Thanks to the foresight of past Mayor Al Krizenesky who envisioned a fish viewing platform extended over the river, your work, planning and encouraging donors to come forward, we now have the beautiful completed project to welcome and show locals and guests the wonders of the Peshtigo River.

The 150th memorial was a fantastic 3 day event. The plan for parking with horse drawn rides to the Park were so unique and appreciated. And the Fireworks - - spectacular! Thank you for the time and hard work to coordinate everything.

My hope is that you will continue to be our City Leader, Mayor, for many years to come.

Kathy Wills Vorpahl



Dear Editor:

It is with great pleasure that we endorse Dorothy Kowalski for Alderperson-at-large

Dorothy has worked on various projects for many years in city government. She has the knowledge of how the city government works and the ability to work with the other Council members.

Dorothy is a very hard-working individual who leaves no stone unturned to complete the task at hand. She brings excellent credentials and has all the qualifications required to be re-elected to Alderperson-at-Large.

She always has shown great concern for the residents of Marinette, and her willingness to listen to people's problems is very commendable. She shows a passion for serving people of the City of Marinette in a balanced, informed and progressive manner.  

I most admire Dorothy for her selfless hard work and time. I served with her on the "Marinette Rec Board", and there I acquired respect and admiration for her intelligence, and dedication to Marinette. She put many hours into making the Marinette Recreational Center possible and now she is working hard on several new projects such as Higley Park and a splash pad.

She is a long-time resident involved in the every-day happenings, but not involved in any outside influential groups that are trying to impact our city in negative ways.

We believe she is fair and kind and has a message of positivity for all people.

It is our intention to vote for Dorothy. We will also spread the word about her abilities and competence.

In conclusion, we deeply support the efforts of Dorothy Kowalski. Your support for her re-election will be highly appreciated. With proud enthusiasm, we support Dorothy for re-election to "Alderperson-at-Large".

Sincerely,

Nan and John Kehoe

Citizens of the City of Marinette.



Dear Editor:

Johnson Creek High School is a school that is currently using concrete dome complexes for grades 5-12. Johnson Creek is currently adding three more domes to handle all the grades K-12. The current price today is approximately $5 million per dome. If Peshtigo School District would do similar and erect a five-dome complex to handle grades 7-12, cost would be approximately $5 million each. Five million times five domes equals $25 million for a complete dome complex. The referendum for 2021 was $35 million. If the Peshtigo School District would build a concrete dome complex, they would be saving $10 million according to this estimate. Don't you agree it is about time the Peshtigo School District considers this type of project for the school building dilemma???

In the upcoming survey from the Peshtigo School District, there will be an open area for you to fill out what you may like for the district to do. Example, new buildings, remodeled, or keep what is currently in use, This could be any idea that you think might help to resolve the 7-12 school building dilemma. The upcoming survey will be used for the next referendum that will be taking place this November.

Thank you,

Randy Monnette

Dear Editor:

Dear Mayor:

We would like to start this letter off by thanking you for your support and help with relocating our milk powder blending facility from Menominee, MI to our current home on West Front Street in Peshtigo. Our relationship so far with you and the City of Peshtigo is very much an example of how a small business and a small municipality can work together to achieve a common goal.

Cathi, you helped secure a UDEG loan to use as a down payment for our new building to save on utilizing working capital which is in short supply at a young company such as ours. This was a major factor in us making the jump to Peshtigo with our main operations. Your tireless effort to help us secure a grant to cover the costs of improving the exterior of our building to make a brighter community is greatly appreciated. The help from you and George Cowell to patch back the road for us as we ungraded our sewer and water services went above and beyond.

All along you have approached us as if we were doing business within the city from the start; even when things went the other direction for a while, still you maintained a positive outlook and professional demeanor. The down to earth attitude of you and your staff is refreshing in today's era of emails and text messages.

We wish you the best of luck in your upcoming election.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Sallgren

President/Member

To the Editor:

I recently noticed an ad in the March 11-13, 2022 edition of the EagleHerald "paid for by the Republican Party of Marinette County" recommending candidates for various County Board and School Board elections. The ad omits any reference to the fact that the Spring Elections are Non-Partisan, or put another way "free from party affiliation, bias, or designation" (Merriam-Webster). Why is the Republican Party, a partisan organization, recommending candidates for a non-partisan election? Let's not attempt to inject the same bitter partisanship and gridlock, currently found in our state and federal government, into our School Boards, County Boards, Town Boards, and City Governments where traditionally elected officials have tried to work together to solve problems and not create divides!

Tuesday April 5th is the date for the Spring Election. The positions on the ballot are not Democrats, Independents, Republicans, nor any other political party, they have no party affiliation. The candidates on the ballot are individuals seeking to represent those Districts or Wards to which they are elected to serve. They are elected to represent those who elected them, NOT to advance an agenda (be it individual or that of a political organization) in an effort to introduce a particular partisan ideology into a non-partisan governing body (eg our County Boards, City Councils, Town Boards, or School Boards).

As Chair of the Marinette County Democratic Party I am not going to suggest who you should vote for this April 05th, that's your decision. What I am going to suggest is that you learn all that you can about the candidates on your ballot and that you cast your ballot based on your informed decision of which candidate will best represent your interests.

A great online resource is MyVote.wi.gov. From this website you can:

Verify that you are registered to vote (go to the "My Voter Info" tab);

Register to vote if you're not registered (go to the "Register to Vote" tab);

Verify your polling place (go to the "Find My Polling Place" tab);

Find what's on your ballot (go to the "What's on My Ballot" tab).

If you don't currently have broadband/internet access, contact the Clerk of your Municipality and ask her/him: are you registered; where do you vote; or what's on your ballot?

This is your decision. VOTE for the candidate who will work for what matters to you.

Please feel free to cut out this Letter to the Editor to help you remember to make an informed decision on April 5th.
