City seeks council candidates after Corpus-Dax announces she won't run for third term

·1 min read

GREEN BAY - The city is scrambling to encourage candidates to run for the District 2 seat of the Green Bay City Council after council member Veronica Corpus-Dax recently filed non-candidacy papers.

The Green Bay Clerks Office issued a press release on Tuesday, announcing the need for interested candidates to file paperwork with the city by Jan. 7.

Corpus-Dax, who has represented the district is southeastern Green Bay since 2018, said in an interview with the Press-Gazette that she had thought about not running for the past six months.

"I was never planning on doing (city council) long term," she said. "It just seemed like the right time for me to move on and have other people try to run for District 2."

She added that her delay in filing her non-candidacy was due to an "oversight" on her part.

"December just got away from me," Corpus-Dax said. "I realized too late that I hadn't submitted my paper in time."

The election is April 5. A primary election would be held on Feb. 15 if three or more candidates enter the race.
