Gov. Tony Evers’ office asked the Door County Community Foundation (DCCF) to convene a discussion about the importance of water to Door County during the governor’s recent visit.
“Protecting our water is not only an environmental and human concern; it is also an economic issue for those of us who live in Door County,” said Bret Bicoy, DCCF’s president and CEO. “We convened a group of leaders from the environmental, educational and business community to help Governor Evers and Secretary Cole understand the issues we face. It’s all a part of our yearlong effort to Celebrate Water.”Joining Evers, Cole and Bicoy were Annie Egan of Celebrate Water Door County, Mark Schuster of Bay Shore Outfitters, Coggin Heeringa of Crossroads at Big Creek, Dave Eliot of Peninsula Publishing & Distribution, Denise Stillman of Foremost Management Services, Tom Clay of the Door County Land Trust, Kevin Osgood of the Door County Maritime Museum and Chris Olson of the Door County Sanitarian Department.
