Park Falls Mayor Michael Bablick was appointed to the League of Wisconsin Municipalities Board of Directors bringing his experience to the organization’s statewide governing body. He will serve through October of 2024.
“I greatly appreciate the opportunity to serve on this Board,” said Bablick, “the League’s mission and work are critical for Wisconsin Cities and Villages to have their voices heard, especially in Madison.”
In 2022 the League’s 16-member Board will be working to set the strategic direction for the League at a critical time in the organization’s history. Cities and villages are facing challenging circumstances not only due to the pandemic, but Wisconsin municipalities also face a dire need to update aging infrastructure and provide vital services, including police and fire services, to their residents.
Mayor Bablick is 31 years old and was born and raised in Park Falls. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from UW-Green Bay in Public Administration and Political Science, and hopes to have his Masters work completed soon, also from UW-Green Bay, in Environmental Science and Policy. He also holds a Wisconsin Teachers License for Science and Social Studies. He worked for the Village of Hobart for 3 years, where he was immersed in local government and economic development prior to running for City Council and then Mayor of Park Falls.
The League was founded in 1898 and is comprised of more than 600 members of large and small cities and villages representing both urban and rural Wisconsin.
