MAYOR JUSTIN NICKELS –
While elected the City of Manitowoc’s youngest mayor at the age of 22, Nickels was born and raised in Manitowoc, as was most of his family on both his mother’s and father’s side.
In 2005, at the age of 18 and still in high school, Nickels beat the odds and was elected to serve on the Common Council, defeating a 16-year incumbent to represent Manitowoc’s Second Aldermanic District.
All about fiscal responsibility, Nickels tells Tom Zalaski in Newsmaker Sunday what he thinks the city should be spending its money on. “First and foremost, the things the citizens deserve. Protection, public safety, good roads. Obviously, the things we expect in every community should be top priorities in every budget. But I have a philosophy where I truly believe the government can spur growth, can spur development, in terms of the downtown,” says Nickels.
Nickels believes the Mayor has many jobs, including providing legislative research support, addressing constituents’ concerns, and representing the interests of the City at local, state, and federal levels.
