Wausau (WAOW) — Katie Rosenberg, a Marathon County board supervisor, has announced her run for mayor in 2020.
She’s the first person to announce their candidacy for the 2020 Wausau mayoral race.
Rosenberg was elected to the board in 2016.
In a statement to News 9, Rosenberg says:
The number one responsibility of mayor is setting the vision and the tone. While the mayor is not a voting member of the council, she is in a unique position to propose the grand, strategic vision for the city, convey possibilities, highlight challenges, and recommend collaborative solutions that deliver results.I’m running for Wausau Mayor because I want to help engineer a sustainable and productive city government where leaders value a strong and engaged community and know what the priorities are. I know that we can get there by reinvigorating our democratic principles and focusing on efforts that deliver a strong return on our public investments.Over the eleven months, you can expect to hear my strategy for Wausau in 2020, 2030, and into the future. I’ll have more details on my campaign in the coming weeks. I’m just getting started.
Wausau Mayor Robert Mielke was elected back in 2016. Right now, he has not said whether or not he plans to re-run for office.
Rosenberg worked for News 9 in several different roles a number of years back.
