Deputy Mayor for the Day 

WEST BEND, Wis. (August 26, 2017) – Deputy Mayor for the Day, Giuseppe Erato, spent the day gaining a personal understanding of the Mayor’s responsibilities and the inner workings of the City of West Bend.  “I believe it is an opportunity to inspire our youth to become involved in our community,” said Mayor Sadownikow. 

Giuseppe met with Mayor Sadownikow to begin his day.  His first order of business was to request a zip line be placed in two of the city’s parks and to cancel all homework for the students of St. Frances Cabrini School.  Giuseppe then toured city hall where he met Mike Ryan and Padrick Dunn of Community T.V.  He enjoyed working the controls for the cameras in the council chambers and had plenty of questions regarding the new city drone.  Giuseppe was amazed to hear that not only is the drone used to record city events but it is sometimes used to assist the police and fire department.  In addition, Giuseppe toured the police department, wastewater treatment plant and fire department.  Giuseppe’s lunch with the fire fighters and City administrator, Jay Shambeau at Fire Station #1 was interrupted by two emergency calls.  A typical day of a fire fighter. 

Deputy Mayor for the Day is a popular city program that began in 2014 and has flourished since.  The city has only one Mayor for the Day recipient per year.
