InfoNancy Nusbaum has spent her life in Northeast Wisconsin as a wife, parent, grandparent, church member, teacher and community leader. Nancy grew up in a tough Green Bay neighborhood, the oldest of six children and the daughter of a truck driver and a stay-at-home mom. After graduating from Green Bay West High School, Nancy worked her way through the University of Wisconsin- Madison and became the first in her family to graduate from college. Nancy and her husband John, a Silver Star recipient from his military service in Vietnam, have been married for 35 years and raised their family in De Pere. They have two grown children and two beautiful grandchildren.

In 1988, Nancy decided to go into public service because she was concerned about the future of her community. She was elected mayor of De Pere for four consecutive terms. During Nancy’s term as mayor, 1,821 new jobs were directly created due to her leadership in economic development. Along with providing jobs, Nancy was a fierce advocate for reducing debt and lowering taxes. The city’s debt was reduced by $7 million and the tax rate was reduced by 29%. During her time as mayor, Nancy also dedicated herself to the revitalization of downtown. Her hard work resulted in De Pere’s Main Street program being praised as a “shining star” example of how communities could rally around their downtown areas to provide economic growth and positive development.

Nancy went on to serve as Brown County Executive for eight years, where she won a Governing Magazine award for Innovation in Government. Nancy’s accomplishments in community development as the Brown County Executive include the opening of the Fox River Trail without any cost to county taxpayers, and the building of the Resch Center, the Convention Center and the first libraries built in 25 years.

During her time as County Executive, Nancy served as a leader both locally and statewide on governmental and economic development issues. She was president of the Wisconsin County Executives and Administrators association and heavily involved in the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce as a board member and the chair of its economic development arm, Advance.

Nancy was then appointed as Director of Crime Victim Services by the Attorney General, where she led the fight to protect abused children and stood up for the victims of rape, domestic violence and other crimes.

As State Senator, Nancy will continue her record of putting the people of Northeastern Wisconsin first, and fight to protect our shared Wisconsin values.
