A Waunakee Village Trustee who was elected to a second term in April has announced her candidacy for the village board president. President Chris Zellner, whose term expires in April, recently announced he would not run for reelection.
In her announcement, Trustee Nila Frye said during her time in office, the board has “helped change how board meetings are conducted,” by offering citizens more time for public comment. Frye has helped answer citizens’ questions, she said. Frye noted that she prepares for meetings so that she can ask questions.
Work remains to be done, she said.
“The village board needs to determine how public comment can be provided during meetings (via email, Zoom, etc.), continue work on accountability, and guide future development in the village,” Frye said. “I will continue to promote communication, accountability, transparency, and citizen participation since these are the building blocks of democracy.”
