Brian Johnson wins most votes in primary election for Green Bay’s District 9

Local News

District 9 candidate Brian Johnson won the primary election last night with a total of 301 votes; alderman Guy Zima, the incumbent of District 9, had 259 votes.

Johnson and Zima will face off on April 3rd for the general spring election.

Local 5 reached out to Zima asking for an interview regarding the February 21st primary election hours before the polls closed.

Zima initially agreed to an interview, then changed his mind, telling the reporter during the phone call that he did not like that Local 5 reported the multiple complaints Green Bay city employees have filed against him over the years. He then hung up on the reporter.

Zima will face the Green Bay ethics board on Wednesday regarding a code of conduct complaint alderwoman Barbara Dorff filed against him. 

Dorff says Zima filed a request to postpone the hearing, writing that he did not have ample time to find a lawyer. He was given 45 days to find a lawyer, starting the day the complaint was filed against him. Dorff says Wednesday is day 41.
