Merkel Runs For City Council

Incumbent Fond du Lac City Councilwoman Karyn Merkel says it’s an exciting time to be living in the City. She says the Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership, the Downtown Exploratory Committee, Association of Commerce, Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Fond du Lac County Economic Development Corporation are all working together to make Fond du Lac the best place it could be. She says believes the new Downtown Exploratory Committee will be under a lot of scrutiny. She says that’s a good thing, but she believes they like the Lakeside Park Exploratory Committee will be open to ideas. She’s also open to the idea of being Council President, although she says Lee Ann Lorrigan is currently doing a good job in that role and Sam Meyer did a nice job before that so it would be hard shoes to fill. Merkel was originally appointed to the Council to replace Jim Sabel.
