August 29, 2017 – West Bend, WI – City staffers in West Bend were answering to a new boss on Tuesday as 9-year-old Giuseppe Erato took over as Mayor for the day.
Erato took a tour of City Hall, met with Mayor Kraig Sadownikow and offered a couple official suggestions on how to get things straightened out in the city including installing a zip line at Decorah Park and to nix homework for a week at St. Frances Cabrini School.
Erato will be going into 4th grade at McLane Elementary this year.
Erato’s mom, Cassie, bid on the “Mayor for a Day” experience at the annual Cabrini auction held at the Washington County Fair Park. “This was a silent auction item and I thought it would be a good way for him to see what the city was like behind the scenes,” said Cassie. “He is really having a good time; he’s just loving it.”
Aside from City Hall Erato also had lunch at the West Bend Fire Department, toured Community TV and the Waste Water Treatment Plant.
