Major campaign issue: “The city needs to start moving forward, and the city needs its leadership to prepare it for the future, and that’s not being done with the present city council.” McBride said he not only would bring six years of experience as an alderman but also open mindedness and “the ability to be a team player.”

Major campaign issue: “In Lake Geneva, we need a representative with the vision to retain the small-town charm that is characteristic of our beloved community while balancing our need to grow through well-planned development.
