eric-genrich-wbayMayor wins surprisingly tight election against challenger Chad Weininger.

GREEN BAY, WI - Eric Genrich won reelection to a second term as Green Bay mayor Tuesday, defeating challenger Chad Weininger by a 53% to 47% margin according to unofficial results from Brown County. At his victory party Tuesday night at Gather on Broadway, he stressed "bread and butter issues" and "new way of looking at politics", while "bringing everyone along" as we continue to make Green Bay a great community for all.

A major issue in the race was the security cameras installed for security reasons at city hall and Weininger's charges that they amounted to spying on citizens. While the race was technically non-partisan, the vote split pretty much on progressive and conservative lines.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement celebrating Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich's reelection victory:

“All of us at the Democratic Party of Wisconsin congratulate Mayor Eric Genrich on his enormous win tonight, a hard-earned reelection victory that represents a triumph for the flourishing of democracy in the Badger State. 

“Ever since Mayor Genrich oversaw the free and fair election in 2020, he has been the target of an unrelenting and at times frightening campaign of disinformation, lies, character assassination, and threats by Big Lie conspiracists. He has never wavered in his commitment to democracy. And through it all, he and his team have remained focused on serving the people of Green Bay, repairing roads and bridges, investing in parks and public safety, and ensuring that small businesses have the resources they need to prosper. 

“The people of Green Bay have chosen progress over propaganda, hope over fear, and a mayor for all over MAGA extremism. Because of Mayor Genrich’s reelection, voters in Wisconisin’s third-largest city can have confidence in the fair administration of the 2024 election, and can know that their city’s chief executive stands for reproductive freedom. All of us can look forward to four more years of moving Green Bay forward.”
