LAUREL — To members of the Downtown Kenosha board for finding an experienced leader to take the organization’s executive director job. The board hired Christopher Naumann, who holds a similar position in Green Bay and seems to be genuinely excited about the potential in our city’s downtown.

Our downtown is still a diamond in the rough, but Naumann sees “a surplus of (available) buildings” as a positive and hopes to build on the work already done along the waterfront and through the development of the museums.
