For those who think I’m really in the loop here, I only found this out myself yesterday from my mother; who called me. After hearing some family rumors Saturday “from the deer stand,” my dad spent the rest of the weekend trying to get a hold of my aunt, Bob’s mother.
County Executive Bob Ziegelbauer was hospitalized over the weekend and will be unable to attend today’s 5:30 p.m. meeting of the Board of Supervisors.
An email from County Clerk Jamie Aulik on Friday to the 25 supervisors indicated he had received word that Ziegelbauer had been hospitalized for possibly a stroke.
Aulik stated he had talked to Jim Ziegelbauer, the county executive’s father, who confirmed that his son was in Green Bay and “will be there for an undetermined amount of time.”
An email from Aulik to supervisors on Sunday indicated the county clerk had talked to Jim Ziegelbauer that morning and the father reported Bob Ziegelbauer is “improving every day.”
At issue right now in Manitowoc Co. politics is whether Bob’s latest county budget passes unamended or not. It passed on a slim majority last month on a 13–12 vote, but it may be reconsidered tonight since it was discovered by the corporation counsel that a motion to reconsider was deemed invalid.
So, without Bob there to lobby, discuss, and answer questions on the document, no one knows what the outcome could be in a re-vote.
