Interview with Mayor Candidate Rebecca Spiros

MEET REBECCA SPIROS, CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR

Rebecca Spiros

My name is Rebecca Spiros. I have decided to run for the position of City of Marshfield Mayor. I am originally from Fremont, Ohio a town just about the same size as Marshfield. I have lived in Marshfield for about 15 years and truly consider this my home.

I have been a nurse for 29 years working in many areas of nursing, including critical care. Previously, I worked as a Registered Nurse at St. Joseph’s Hospital and have been with the Marshfield Clinic for 7.5 years. I work part-time as a patient educator and disease management nurse for the Heart Failure Improvement Center. I enjoy my position very much and the Clinic is a highly respected health care system so, I’m very happy I am a part of that.

Since 2013, I have also served on the Marshfield Common Council, the Finance, Budget, and Personnel Committee, and the Judiciary & Licensing Committee. I am also a UW Wood County Commissioner and serve on the Board of the Hannah Center.

I decided to run for this office because I really enjoy public service. I have become immersed in this city and the challenges involved in trying to make decisions that are best for the population as a whole. I want to be a part of a city that really values all of its residents, from the most vulnerable to the very strongest. I believe I am the best choice for this position because I have, from my time on the Common Council, a deep understanding of the inner workings of Marshfield. I know our strengths but, I also know the challenges we face, with things such as infrastructure and economic growth and I believe there are opportunities to make things better. I have a good working relationship with the current council and city leaders. I value what I have learned under our current leadership and look forward to applying what I have learned from them.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, John. We have 5 adult children and three lovely grandchildren who I just adore. We enjoy sporting events especially attending the Green Bay Packers football games.

I’d really like the readers to know that I am truly dedicated to them. I want to see Marshfield continue to be a safe place to raise their families. I believe in making fiscally sound decisions and I’d like to see Marshfield be a place of opportunity, a place where people can start or expand their businesses. I look forward to the challenges ahead and the opportunity to not only listen but, to really hear the ideas and suggestions of the people of the great community.
