“I consider myself part of a project to make our city a place for everyone,” said Genrich. “To invest in infrastructure and public safety, to deepen our democracy, and strengthen our community, and to grow an inclusive economy.”

Mayor Eric Genrich said he will continue to talk about his upcoming campaign after the November Election.

“In the meantime, keep loving Green Bay and supporting one another,” Genrich said in closing.
