The parade was organized instead of a party due to social distancing and gathering restrictions because of the coronavirus.

“The people and the citizens are the ones who really kept me going and to have the citizens of De Pere elect and reelect me 12 times is very humbling,” Walsh told WFRV Local 5.

WFRV Local 5’s Kris Schuller caught up with Walsh last week as he reflected on his career.
