Eye on Oshkosh interviews of candidates for local office have gotten underway


On the most recent edition of Eye on Oshkosh, host Cheryl Hentz chatted with three candidates seeking election to local office.

In the first segment she chats with Aaron Wojciechowski, running as a Democrat for State Senate District 18, against Republican incumbent Dan Feyen, who is seeking a second term. Wojciechowski is currently the youngest member of the Winnebago County Board and was elected three years ago at the age of 19. During his tenure there, he has authored and seen passage of some important and meaningful pieces of legislation, which he discusses on the show. He also spoke about what he calls obstructionist political games, having more transparency in state government, including caucuses which are currently held behind closed doors, crumbling roads and other infrastructure, the legalization and decriminalization of marijuana, etc. This election isn’t until the fall, so he will visit Eye on Oshkosh again later in the year.

In the second segment, Hentz talks with two candidates seeking a seat on Oshkosh Common Council – Lynnsey Erickson and Danny Garcia this April. Both currently serve on city boards and commissions – Lynnsey on the Plan Commission and the Transit Authority board and Danny on the Rental Housing Advisory Board. As with Wojciechowski, they have been getting their feet wet buy learning about local government and how it operates and, instead of simply complaining about something they see as problems, are actually trying to do something about them to improve things for all. Erickson and Garcia discuss the poor roads in Oshkosh and how best to get more roads done in a more timely fashion, the ever-increasing water rates, more transparency in government and/or better communicating what the city is doing, etc.
