Andrew Werthmann announces bid for EC City Council President

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Eau Claire ( WQOW)- As many campaigns will end in about a month, the race is just beginning for Eau Claire City Council President, to be elected in April.

In June, Kerry Kincaid resigned as president after being re-elected to a three-year term, leaving Vice President Andrew Werthmann the acting president.

Thursday, he launched his campaign to keep that position.

At Forest Park, Werthmann said he decided to get the ball rolling because there’s a lot of energy in the community right now, and people want to get involved.

Werthmann said if he’s elected he wants to focus on poverty, announcing an initiative called “Eau Claire for All.”

“We’re a growing community, but as I said not everyone is seeing that success,” Werthmann said. “I feel like our next steps have got to be tackling poverty and equality, investing in our neighborhoods and making sure that everyone is lifted up by the success in our community.”

Werthmann said he also wants to focus on sustainability, and look at energy affordability and water issues.

So far, we haven’t heard of anyone running against him in the April election.
