GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – In addition to the threatening letter sent to Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich, candidate Chad Weininger shared news of his own threatening message that was received days ago.

According to Weininger, he received a text message that read, “I’ll find your family and kill them all.” That message was sent just under a week ago, on Friday, March 17, 2023.

“I know exactly how Mayor Genrich feels,” said Weininger. “There is no place in political discourse that should include threats of any kind.” 

Green Bay Police are actively investigating these threats.
