SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- The man who won a recall election for mayor of Sheboygan will be sworn in Monday night.
Terry Van Akkeren will serve the remainder of Bob Ryan's term, which ends in April of next year. Some officials who worked with Ryan during his nearly 3 years as mayor say he has done some good things for the city, including attracting new business and industry to the community. Sheboygan County Board chairman Mike Vandersteen says Ryan's accomplishments were unfortunately overshadowed by the negative attention of his public battle with alcoholism.
The Sheboygan Press reports Ryan said after the recall election results were announced that he would not run for mayor of Sheboygan again.
