Protasiewicz elected to Supreme Court, and 3 Referenda win approval
After a long night of waiting for final returns, Eric Genrich was re-elected for his 2nd term as Mayor of Green Bay. The unofficial final tally gave Genrich 13,507 votes (52.85%) and challenger, Chad Weininger 11,999 votes (46.95%), with 52 votes (.20%) recorded for various write-ins.
Posting on his Facebook Page yesterday, Genrich said “Serving as Green Bay’s mayor will always be the honor of my professional life, but nothing beats the pride I feel as the husband and dad in this picture (see photo above). I can only do what I do because of the strength of my incredible wife and the humor of my amazing kids. I love them so much; that they love me back is an invaluable gift every day.”
In a thank-you post on his campaign Facebook page, Weininger said “Thank you to all of you who supported me in this effort. While the results weren’t what we hoped, we keep moving forward. I wouldn’t have gotten to where I was without all of the fantastic volunteers, donors, and my family by my side.”
