SHEBOYGAN — An elected Sheboygan alderperson has attended just 11 of 20 Common Council meetings so far this session.
7th District Alderperson Andrew Schneider has missed nine of 20 regular Common Council meetings since the 2017-18 session began on April 24th, 2017. In addition to serving on the city council, Schneider was appointed as Vice-Chairperson to the city’s Public Works Committee by Mayor Mike Vandersteen.
The alderperson attended seven of 15 Public Works Committee meetings.
Schneider collects a $4,000 per year salary as alderperson.
MySheboygan.com reached out to Schneider about his attendance and was told his reason for not attending meetings is due to his employment that requires him to “travel in North America.” Schneider returned to work for Johnsonville after working as general manager at Lakeside Foods in Random Lake.
