Catherine Block Seeks Spot On FDL City Council

Fond du Lac City Council candidate Catherine Block says she can think outside the box and can bring some fresh perspective to the City Council. One example would be how she would have decided the issue over whether or not to suspend the liquor license of the Retlaw Hotel over a huge debt the owner owes the City. She says she would have suspended their liquor license Sunday through Thursdays so events could still be held on weekends where the license would be needed. She says the garbage fee created by the City is a tax by any other name, but sometimes you have to find ways to continue providing services you want. Block, a local attorney, says although she has the ability to think outside the box she does have a lot in common with other residents. She says she works, goes to school, volunteers, has two children and can relate to a great deal of the population. Block is one of four candidates running for three seats on the City Council. The others are Dan Manning, Sam Meyer and incumbent Rebecca Lunde Ross.
