Seems the Mayor of Green Bay must be running low on money. He seems to be having problems with names or so he says.

BROWN COUNTY – The name Green Bay usually implies something is in the city. But the mayor of the city says too often, businesses in neighboring communities are misusing the Green Bay name.
“I think the businesses that use Green Bay, they have the option of using Howard or Bellevue. They choose Green Bay and I think they choose Green Bay for a good reason. I think it’s a terrific community and I would to,” Jim Schmitt told FOX 11 On Special Assignment reporter Robert Hornacek.
But Schmitt wants it to stop.
But Schmitt’s proposal doesn’t end there. He wants all of the city’s neighbors, Bellevue, Allouez, Ashwaubenon and Howard, to become part of Green Bay.
Schmitt has already reached out to the Postal Service to try to resolve the issue. He wants Green Bay to have its own unique zip codes and mailing addresses to protect the city’s name and identity.

Is Mayor Jim Schmitt having health issues. Is he worried his president won’t be re-elected this fall? Can you believe he even wrote the U S Postal service? This all seems troubling.
Why would Schmitt be having such dire problems with cities and villages surrounding Green Bay? We have to wonder why his list does not include DePere and Hobart? The plan must be to grab (annex) areas like Howard to get their higher tax base. He needs a way to generate his liberal city planning and he must be tapped out of ideas. Maybe it’s time for Mayor Schmitt to find another area of expertise ( J O B)!
