Statement from Stevens Point Mayer on NewPage

Statement of Mayor Andrew Halverson, City of Stevens Point, WI

Our thoughts and prayers, first and foremost, are with the families affected by this mill closure.  Clearly no time is appropriate for a plant closing and this time of the year couldn't be worse.  We will do everything we can as a community to work for these workers and work with Whiting to get through what will be a difficult situation for them.  We have been in direct contact with Rep. Molepske to work as quickly as we can to help these workers get the benefits they will need; and continue to push for worker support and workforce development we need in this area.  Economic development is the focus of our region and will remain so moving forward.   


Andrew J. Halverson, Mayor
