March 1, 2018 – Washington Co., WI – Dear neighbors in West Bend District 7: My name is Adam Williquette. I am currently running for re-election for Dist. 7 alderman in the April 3, 2018 election.
As your representative on the West Bend Common Council I have been focused on creating a business-friendly environment, a safe and high quality of life, and a financially-stable budget.
With 15 years in commercial real estate and a finance degree from the UW-Milwaukee, I have been very diligent as Chairman of the Finance Committee in how to wisely keep the city running without wasting your hard earned taxpayer money.
I care because I was born and raised in the West Bend area; I attended St. Frances Cabrini School before graduating from West Bend West High School.
As a voting member of the Common Council here are a few notable accomplishments over the last 6 years:
- The city has balanced a multi-million dollar budget while not raising taxes.
- The city built a new Police Department while keeping public safety a top priority.
- Debt in West Bend has been reduced exponentially and is on track to be at a manageable level.
- The city has attracted new businesses and construction.
- The city is well aware of demands on roadways and has increased the road maintenance budget by 30%.
In my effort to improve the business climate, I successfully pushed to have the façade improvement grant expanded to now include the Historic Barton Business District. This is a matching grant that can be used by commercial properties in Barton.
I’ve worked hard to keep the road maintenance at the top of the list with resurfacing Skyline Drive and before that Salisbury Road. Listening to people in the community, I understand our roads still need more work and I am a loud voice on the council to make it a priority.
Thanks to a persistent effort the Public Works Department cleaned up the “Barton Bog” by removing the weeds growing above the dam and because of my ties with real estate, I’ve been focused on bringing business to the community and filling empty storefronts with several new businesses moving to the Barton area the past few months.
It has been my honor to serve as your city representative for the past 6 years and I encourage you to mark Adam Williquette on your ballot when you vote April 3.
If you have any questions or concerns, my door is always open. You can reach me at 262-208-4572.
