City Council candidates share viewpoints (UPDATED)

Editor's note: On March 24, the River News emailed election profile questions to all candidates for contested City Council seats. The messages were sent to email addresses the candidates provided to the city clerk's office. A reminder email was sent out March 31. As of press time, we received responses from three candidates. Their answers are published below. Since this article went to press, candidates Eileen Daniel (District 7), Bill Freudenberg (District 7), and Carrie Mikalauski (District 3) have advised that they will be submitting answers to our questions as well. Their responses will be published in our Tuesday print edition. As Freudenberg and Daniel submitted their responses Friday, we've added them to this post. Mikalauski's responses will be added when they are received.



Voters in three City of Rhinelander aldermanic districts will choose their representatives on the Common Council April 7.

In District 3, Carrie Mikalauski is challenging Lee Emmer, who was appointed to the council in February 2019 following the December 2018 resignation of former alderperson Sherri Belliveau.

In District 5, retired attorney and pastor Gerald Anderson will face Rhinelander High School social studies teacher, and former charter school principal, Wil Losch for the seat currently held by Dawn Rog.

Rog did not seek re-election.

In District 7, former alderperson Bill Freudenberg and newcomer Eileen Daniel are vying for the seat currently held by Steve Sauer, who also chose not to seek re-election.

The River News sent a list questions to each of the candidates and also requested they provide a brief biographical sketch. Their unedited responses are published below in alphabetical order.

The other council seat up for election this month is District 1. Incumbent George Kirby chose not to run for re-election and local author and artist Tom Barnett is running unopposed.



District 5

Gerald Anderson



What prompted you to run for City Council? (Please include a short biographical sketch when answering this question)

My wife Susan & I have grandchildren who have grown up in the Rhinelander area. We are involved in church activities and Learning in Retirement. I'm an avid reader & like to keep up with the issues in all levels of government. I enjoy outdoor activities, including hiking the Appalachian Trail 3 times & doing trail maintenance on the Ice Age Trail & North Country Trail.

Throughout my life, I have been given many opportunities to serve others. During 8 years as a civil engineer in the U.S. Air Force, I learned a great deal about governmental processes, especially planning & carrying out public works projects. While practicing law in a small town for 25 years, I represented ordinary people in a variety of legal matters & provided counsel to two municipalities. Then I was called to serve two congregations & their communities as a pastor. Working on the common Council will be an opportunity to serve the public interest in Rhinelander. I hope to contribute to harmony among the Council and with other governmental & community agencies. My life experience has brought considerable ability in analyzing issues, explaining them, & helping to resolve them. Especially, I believe I can be a calming influence in times of tension, encouraging people to work together for the common good. All these skills are much needed in our city at this time.



2. In your opinion, what is the role of an alderperson in a city the size of Rhinelander?

Certainly, it involves representing the concerns of the people of a district, but the goal always has to be to find what is best for the city as a whole. That is most evident in setting budget priorities, given that the resources are always limited, but it also involves seeing that all city functions are working in the most efficient and effective manner. I believe that involves each alderperson getting involved enough in some aspect of the city's services to be able to make intelligent recommendations to the Council. It does not mean personally meddling in day-to-day activities of any department. That's the real purpose of having committees of jurisdiction, so that there are clear lines of responsibility between the Council and the administration. Having at least some alderpersons informed about the issues has to be a lot better than having the whole Council be equally ignorant.



3. If elected, what three things would you want the City Council to focus on moving forward?

The top priority, on which everything else depends, has to be to change the present climate of distrust & anger. A few new people on the Council should help, but it will take a while to calm things down in the community & the electronic media. The best thing the Council can do is show that its members can work together for the common good. That means demonstrating that the Council can actually be trusted to represent the people of this city and get things done in a calm and purposeful manner. I see Rhinelander as a city that still provides excellent services, even in a poor economic situation and amidst serious interpersonal issues. Certainly, our streets are always an issue since our cold winters make pavement more difficult to maintain than in places farther south. We should be more active, along with other municipalities, in working to get a more equitable distribution of money from the state. Meanwhile, we need a long-range plan, working on every possible source of grants for street work, with a view toward projects that last, rather than expensive "quick fixes". With a common purpose, there are so many things that can be done to make this city a better place to live & work: enhancing our image as a tourist destination, drawing in job-creating businesses, encouraging our local educational institutions to train the unnecessary workers, upgrading our housing stock so workers can afford to live here, generally making Rhinelander a great place for us all to live and where business & medical professionals want to come and stay.



4. How would you rate the level of transparency in city government? How would you boost transparency, if you believe the city is lacking in this regard?

There seems to be a lot of public doubt that city government knows where it is going. Large numbers of people have been attending Common Council meetings, coming away without answers. This might be described as a "transparency" problem. To me it shouldn't just be a matter of technical compliance with laws, but of actively making sure the people know the people's business. That starts with alderpersons being fully informed, which doesn't seem to be happening with the "committee-of-the-whole" structure. Closed meetings should be infrequent, fully justified, and the results made known as soon and as completely as possible. I'd like to be a part of serious & open discussions that reduce the level of conflict, make all the facts known, & lead to forward movement.



5. How would you tackle the city's well contamination/water quality issue?

Water is vital to our future, & pollutants are hard to clean from an aquifer. Current issues with PFAS should alert us to protect our wells & groundwater from pollution going forward. Right now, we need advice [grant money may be available] on how a particular well can be brought into compliance with water quality standards.



6. How do you feel about so-called public-private partnerships where city tax money is used to help fund projects led by private citizens or businesses?

With limited city resources, such partnerships may be a good way to get some things done to improve the infrastructure & the economy. Since it is public money involved, we need to be sure it really produces a public benefit and is not giving one business an advantage over others.



District 5

Wil Losch



I am a proud father of three teenagers. I was raised in the City of Rhinelander, graduating from RHS in 1990. I have been a teacher in the School District of Rhinelander since 2000, currently teaching Government and US History at RHS. I enjoy watching local sports teams and jogging in my neighborhood.



What prompted you to run for City Council?

Last year I began to lose confidence in the city council's ability to effectively govern and address problems that threaten the health and prosperity of the people of Rhinelander. The well contamination/water quality issue is an issue that should have unanimous support to solve, but I do not feel that has been the case. I was concerned city council members' and the mayor's negative interactions with each other was becoming a hurdle to citizens fully understanding the issues. More importantly their negative interactions with each other seem to be getting in the way of fixing problems that endanger our health. Rather than complain about it, I sought to become part of the solutions by running for city council.



In your opinion, what is the role of an alderperson in a city the size of Rhinelander?

To provide oversight for the organization of city government. To listen to the concerns of city residents, study local, state and national issues and put to best use the city's resources in providing and maintaining infrastructure in a way that promotes citizens health and freedom.



If elected, what three things would you want the City Council to focus on moving forward?

Providing sound information, local support and obtaining state/Federal resources to support Rhinelander's health and economic recovery in the midst of the CORVID-19 pandemic.

Providing sound information to citizens and obtaining outside resources to help solve the PFAS problem in our water.

Supporting the workers that maintain our infrastructure, safety and local government by maintaining fair contracts and providing them the resources to do their jobs well.



How would you rate the level of transparency in city government? How would you boost transparency, if you believe the city is lacking in this regard?

The transparency of city government needs improvement. Records need to be soundly safeguarded against tampering or removal. All council meetings, agendas and minutes should be properly posted and meetings must only cover approved agenda items.

Water quality data should consistently be posted online and paper copies be made available to citizens. Communications to city residents about water quality or any other health issue should not be white washed (nor should fears be intentionally stoked). All relevant facts should be shared in a straightforward way so residents can make informed decisions for their households.

I will follow state ordinances regarding meeting attendance and sharing of information with constituents and the media. And I will follow a spirit of transparency and thoroughness in educating my constituents to the best of my ability about any aspect of city government they may ask about. If I don't know the answer, I will find someone who does. I applaud Council Members and other city hall leaders that have worked to maintain our procedures during Stay at Home conditions.



How would you tackle the city's well contamination/water quality issue?

The first priority needs to be fully assessing and understanding the nature of the problem. We must have sound water quality testing measures. In the past, water quality monitoring has been compromised and not reported (or possibly not understood) by city leaders. The next priority is about fixing the problem. The water department needs to be equipped with the proper technology and training to treat it and ensure our well water is safe. City officials and department leaders should share findings and practices with local townships and local private businesses that work installing private wells. Aquifers don't honor the same boundaries as the local government.

A review of current literature on PFAS issues will show that this is an emerging problem in many areas of the state and the country. Rhinelander can be a leader in solving this group of water quality issues. But we won't be a leader if our city council remains divided and publically bickers about a variety of smaller issues. The Mayor and next City Council need to work together to recruit and retain UW-Madison scientists, engineers and private entrepreneurs or businesses to come to Rhinelander and make this a place to study, solve and train others to address PFAS issues. City leaders need to work frankly, constructively and persistently with our local Assembly and State Senate representatives, the Governor's office and DNR officials to get give and get current information about solving any water quality problem. Finally, the sources of local PFAS contamination must be identified to prevent further contamination. This needs to be done in a transparent fashion. The intent of this must not be to point fingers, but to understand PFAS, stop any continued contamination and protect the future health of our citizens and economy.

As we learn more about the causes (and possible remedies) to our PFAS contamination, we must resist the urge to jump towards national ideological positions moving forward. As I write this, the DNR and Airport continue to dispute over the Airport's role, if any, in this matter. Is a private business(es) responsible? Is the local government? Did the state government have a hand in allowing a dangerous practice to take place? As a city leader, I will not spin this as a partisan issue as we learn the answers to those questions. Bad water hurts all my neighbors just the same, no matter what their political leanings are. I am most interested in solutions. Solutions can and must be driven by the City Council. I'm all for getting State Government, our universities, and private organizations to be a part of transparent, effective solutions.



How do you feel about so-called public-private partnerships where city tax money is used to help fund projects led by private citizens or businesses?

The devil's in the details. I support effective, transparent public-private partnerships. Throughout our state's and nation's history there have been public-private partnerships that helped build infrastructure that benefits us and grew the economy. And there have also been some boondoggles that cost taxpayers. I support effective public-private partnerships. Effective partnerships include the following: A transparent planning process that allows for citizen input, clear understanding of costs, risks and benefits by council members and the mayor when approving a partnership, timely and clear communication to constituents of those costs, risks and benefits, an open and fair bidding process to private entities looking to enter the partnership, absence of any financial conflicts of interest to city officials (elected or otherwise), clear timeline and benchmarks for completion/delivery of services and payments, and clear, reasonable parameters for ending the partnership. Effective public-private partnerships should be time bound, not to extend so far in the future as to handcuff future city council groups yet to be elected. Effective public-private partnerships must be win-win for taxpayers/residents and the private businesses of the area.



District 3

Lee Emmer



1. What prompted you to run for City Council? (Please include a short biographical sketch when answering this question)

I believe my experiences in other communities with similar projects, dilemmas and issues should be an asset to the City. Sometimes seeing and participating in solutions of others can give a different and potentially beneficial view of local issues. Alternate solutions are certainly worth discussion. I've found most issues and problems are probably not unique, it's just that they aren't well advertised and sometimes just aren't shared. As Alderperson, I can share a unique understanding of municipal issues and infrastructure. I view service to the City of Rhinelander as a great opportunity to share the knowledge I have acquired in my many years of engineering related experience.

I've worked at the same full service engineering/architectural/planning firm for 39 years. For most of those years I've been dealing directly with City Councils and Village Boards. My current position as Client Service Manager puts me on the front line for resolving municipal client problems and issues. I have a very strong background when it comes to municipal sewer, water, street and storm sewer design and construction as well as grants, planning, Tax Incremental Finance (TIF) Districts, community and economic development, and parks and recreation. During the last 39 years, I have also served as a Project Manager, a Team Leader an Office Manager and Client Service Manager for my current employer.



2. In your opinion, what is the role of an alderperson in a city the size of Rhinelander?

In Rhinelander, an alderman is elected by the residents in his/her district. I reside in District 3 so I represent the people of District 3. As District 3 Alderman, I am responsible for representing the needs of my district at the local level. My role is to act as the voice of District 3 and provide, discuss and vote on agenda items that come before the City Council. In a City the size of Rhinelander, an Alderperson should also keep an eye on municipal policy and try to assure it is being implemented as planned.



3. If elected, what three things would you want the City Council to focus on moving forward?

• Clean and adequate water supply

• City Streets including sidewalks and multi-use pathways

• Economic development



4. How would you rate the level of transparency in city government? How would you boost transparency, if you believe the city is lacking in this regard?

I think the level of transparency in Rhinelander City government is very low. Sometimes, issues come before the Council that have been added at the last minute with little or no discussion. There simply isn't adequate time at a Council meeting to hash out the plusses or minuses of a particular issue. Sometimes important discussions are cut short. Items are rushed to approval (or disapproval) with inadequate understanding. Sometimes it is simply not possible to get a potentially important item on the agenda. There really isn't any in-between place where an idea can be conceived, delivered and nurtured before delivery for approval of the Council. TID usage, planning, infrastructure improvements even potential grants and grant applications fall victim to this. At a Council meeting, it is just yes or no with very limited discussion. This method is bound to lead to some disagreement, some oversights and some mistakes. I believe this era of disagreement and lack of transparency may have begun with elimination of committees. Certainly, committee level discussion can be tedious but it can eliminate most obstacles before an item arrives at Council.

I think two things would help get the City back on the track to transparency. First of all, agendas need to be posted earlier than they are currently. When agendas are posted the Friday or possibly even the Saturday before the meeting, it is impossible to get a feeling for how one's constituents feel about the item. Sometimes it is even impossible to figure out what the item it about. In other words...eliminate the surprises. I think the City should also return to the committee structure it previously enjoyed. I believe this could eliminate a lot of the seeming confusion and chaos at meetings. Keep the stress at the Committee level. It does not belong on the Council floor. A much more harmonious message could be delivered to the press and others. I know other items need to be undertaken but I believe these will help lead the way.



5. How would you tackle the city's well contamination/water quality issue?

In line with my engineering background, I have strived to be well informed on water supply issues. Particularly, the PFAs situation, anticipated limits, possible solutions and potential action. I plan to keep on top of the most current information regarding water supply issues and share any current information that affect the health and safety of the drinking water within our city and around the state not only with the council, but the entire community.

I think it is important to remember there are a lot of experts trying to resolve the PFAs issue to the benefit of all involved. I would strive to form mutually beneficial relationships with these people or organizations. Nothing is to be gained by disregarding or disrespecting the experts. I would also try to be proactive and take a hard look at future solutions and start the planning now. We do not want to get caught unprepared. The City has two wells currently out of production. Those two wells certainly weren't engineered and built because there wasn't a need. Sometime, in the not too distant future, that need will catch up with us. The wells will either have to be cleaned up or replaced. Planning now should lead to a better scenario in the future. We need to remember grants go to those that are prepared.



6. How do you feel about so-called public-private partnerships where city tax money is used to help fund projects led by private citizens or businesses? 

I think public/private partnerships could serve the City very well. I believe the City has a good system of Tax Incremental Finance Districts in place to facilitate these partnerships.

The City does need to educate itself a bit better concerning the uses, advantages and limitations of TIF Districts.

Regardless of how the City chooses to implement a public/private partnership, whenever the City enters into such an agreement, it needs to make sure adequate Development Agreements are in place to protect the City interests.





Carrie Mikalauski

(District 3)



What prompted you to run for City Council?



I have lived in Rhinelander all of my life graduating from Rhinelander High School in 1993. I have lived within the city limits of Rhinelander for over 20 years with my husband Brian and my daughter Kaydee. For the past 10 years I have worked for the Oneida County Department of Social Services, currently in the Protective Services Unit. Through working for the County, I have gained valuable knowledge of how local government works. After consistent attendance at City Council meetings, I felt compelled to run for the Alderperson position because of all the turmoil that is currently present at both City Hall and on the City Council. I feel I have the skills and abilities to unite differences and bring both the employees and the City Council together in order to move Rhinelander forward.



In your opinion, what is the role of an Alderperson in a city the size of Rhinelander?



I believe the role of an Alderperson is to work as a team to develop goals and plans. To enact a shared vision for the city's future and to work with both their constituents and Council members to establish the local policies and laws that will lead to progress. Most importantly, I believe the role of the Alderperson is to be the voice of their constituents. In order to do that, they would need to make themselves available for communication with them and to really listen to what their needs are.



If elected, what three things would you want the City Council to focus on moving forward?



Economic Development

Safe Water Supply

Improved Roads



How would you rate the level of transparency in city government? How would you boost transparency if you believe the city is lacking in this regard?



I feel there are improvements the City needs to make in the area of transparency. A couple ideas come to mind that could rectify the transparency issue. First, I feel the city could do a better job at announcing the meeting agendas. Currently, the meeting agendas are posted either a day or two prior to the meetings. I feel this could be improved so that not only the council members would have more time to prepare for the meetings, but it would also give the Alderpersons a chance to discuss items on the agenda with their constituents so the Alderperson could be better informed on how the constituents would like them to vote on certain matters. Also, I would like to see the City's website be more user friendly so that the agendas aren't buried so deeply within the website that people have a hard time finding it. I would want there to be a link on the home page of the City's website designated specifically for the agenda.



Another area that I feel could improve is in regards to the Open Records requests. Currently, the City is being overwhelmed with all of the requests for records that they are having an inability to process those requests timely. I would work very hard at creating a system that would streamline that process.



How would you tackle the City's well contamination/water quality issues?



I believe we need to rely on what the experts say about our well water/water quality issue. I know the Mayor suggested to have filters in every home in the city, but I feel that is just a band-aid approach to this problem. I believe we need to fix the issues at the source, the wells themselves. How we go about doing that still needs to be determined. This is where I feel we need to rely on the experts. We need to listen to what they say and then implement the plan that makes the most sense both environmentally and economically. Most importantly the health of the citizens of Rhinelander should be the first priority regarding this issue.



How do you feel about so-called public/private partnerships where city tax money is used to help fund projects led by private citizens or businesses?



I'm not opposed to using public/private partnerships if the projects would be for the best interest of the City. Sometimes private sectors have more skills, abilities and resources than what the City may have so it would be beneficial for the City to partner with them. This could possibly make more sense economically to develop and move the city of Rhinelander forward. One always needs to look at what's in the best interest of the City first, before entering into any partnership.





Bill Freudenberg (District 7)



1. I have the experience of once serving on the City council from 2004-2012 and I want to make a difference in this community

2. Always listen to the people and to communicate with them as well. To be responsible fiscally. And to represent the people of my district in the best way I can.

3 Transparency. To bring the City to more of a positive picture and to promote our community. Better oversight of City operations.

4. The level of transparency is poor and by having just two council meetings per month and the information is limited.I believe that the committee as a whole is not working and we need to bring back the committee meetings.Be honest with the taxpayers they deserve that.

5. To monitor our water system as required by state guidelines to make sure all water is safe to use, by working with the water specialists at the Department of Natural Resources.

6. I believe in partnerships but be very careful with taxpayer dollars.



Eileen Daniel (District 7)

1. What prompted you to run for City Council? (Please include a short biographical sketch when answering this question)

I have lived in Rhinelander for over 16 years. It's my home. It's where I have raised my kids, worked, played, and supported local businesses and organizations. I want to see Rhinelander move forward. So many times I hear people complaining about the problems the town has, but they never offer a solution or take any measures to make it better. When Steve Sauer announced he would not be seeking re-election, I recognized the opportunity to bring positive representation not only to my district, but to Rhinelander as a whole. I have a strong professional research and marketing background and will use the skills I have to understand all aspects of issues facing Rhinelander.



2. In your opinion, what is the role of an alderperson in a city the size of Rhinelander?

An alderperson's duty is to act as part of a collective body - with the city council and the mayor - to make decisions that are in the best interest of the city. It is imperative to put aside personal opinion and listen to what the citizens of Rhinelander have to say about what they truly want to see within the city. Alderpersons also act as ambassadors of Rhinelander's city government, and the city itself, to the general public, businesses, and organizations. Residents of Rhinelander should feel comfortable going to their alderpersons to discuss matters of concern and know they are being heard.



3. If elected, what three things would you want the City Council to focus on moving forward?

Economic growth and recovery from the impact COVID-19 may have on our community. We are going to need to heal in many different ways.

Finding solutions for the PFAS issue with our water system. We need not just band-aids like in-home filters, but real long-term solutions to ensure our water is safe for our families to consume.

Improving the city's reputation and relationship with the outlying communities and internal entities within Rhinelander. It's crucial our city government work well with the Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Rhinelander, Inc., as well as the townships of Newbold, Crescent, Harshaw, Pine Lake, Pelican, etc. Clear and frequent communication is key to these relationships.



4. How would you rate the level of transparency in city government? How would you boost transparency, if you believe the city is lacking in this regard?

This question is actually trickier than you might think. I believe the people who work at City Hall are doing their best to provide information to the general public to the best of their ability. Over the last several years the city has been through some turmoil, and has faced some difficult decisions. There appears to have been some difficulty in chain of custody handling with regard to certain documents and files. There needs to be clear organization of documents, clear communication of duties, and a better handling of information overall. As an alderperson, my goal is to make sure all constituents feel comfortable coming to me for answers and information. I will answer their questions directly and honestly, or direct them to where they can find accurate information if I am unable to answer.



All meeting agendas and packets need to be posted far enough in advance for the general public and alderpersons to attend meetings prepared, and minutes/audio recordings need to continue to be posted promptly following meetings. This allows all citizens to be informed. I am pleased there has been increased attendance at city council meetings over the past year by the general public, as it speaks to their willingness to be involved in our community as a whole.



5. How would you tackle the city's well contamination/water quality issue?

Water contaminated with PFAS is not just a Rhinelander problem. It's not just a Wisconsin problem. It is a worldwide problem. I have talked with the mayor on many occasions about the implications of these contaminants in our city's water system and the steps which could be taken to deal with them. As of today, nobody has found an economical, permanent solution. Weighing the pros and cons of various short-term or "band-aid" solutions is where we are currently. One solution might include drilling much deeper wells below the contamination line of groundwater (but these wells may also get contaminated in the future if the contaminants continue to seep deeper). Installing large filter systems at the water treatment plant designed specifically to eliminate PFAS is another possibility. Both of these come with price tags which will need to be addressed as well. With continued research in this area, and continued diligence in research on the part of the Mayor and members of council, I am confident the city will be able to find the right solution and I look forward to being a part of that solution.



6. How do you feel about so-called public-private partnerships where city tax money is used to help fund projects led by private citizens or businesses?

Economic development is crucial to a city's growth and prosperity. Right now, the city has an economic stimulus loan fund available downtown businesses can apply for at a very low (0% - 3%) interest rate for improvements to their facilities. This loan program came about through a combined effort of DRI, the city of Rhinelander, and the James E. Cleary Foundation This money is repaid to the fund, keeping the fund alive, and allows business owners to have extra cash to make improvements. These improvements have the potential to increase their business, bringing more people to downtown, and bolstering the downtown community. As they say, "A rising tide raises all boats." Rhinelander also has TIF (Tax Incremental Finance) districts which have served both the city and the businesses in those districts well. When administered effectively, these kinds of partnerships can be quite beneficial to all entities involved.
