Manning Makes City Council Bid

Fond du Lac City Council candidate Dan Manning is not only a newcomer to city politics, but also to the City. Manning moved to Fond du Lac a year and a half ago to work as a manufacturing engineer at Giddings & Lewis. But he says he’s not stranger to being involved in the community. He started the non-profit Salute the Troops organization that helps Veterans in need. He’s followed the Retlaw Hotel saga over unpaid taxes and fees owed the City. Manning says he would have opted to suspend the license for a short period of time to send a message to the owners North Main Hospitality. He says he would have chosen to suspend their license for at least 10 days. He says rather than cutting services he would use knowledge he’s gained at work to look for ways to be more efficient and save money. Manning is one of four candidates running for three seats on the Fond du Lac City Council. The others are Catherine Block, Sam Meyer and incumbent Rebecca Lunde Ross.
