In the latest episode of “Meeting in Middle America,” host Steven Olikara interviews Wausau Mayor Katie Rosenberg, who was elected in April of this year over the incumbent candidate. She discusses how her job has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, including local budget issues, and talks about some of the challenges she faces as mayor of a mid-sized city in central Wisconsin. Rosenberg also explains how her background in media and marketing shapes her approach to local government, and shares some life lessons she picked up during her time playing roller derby.
“Meeting in Middle America” is a collaboration between the Lubar Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee and WisPolitics.com/WisBusiness.com. Sponsored by WAGET and Bridge & Build.
