GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Green Bay Police Department is investigating a note that was sent to Mayor Genrich. The note reads, in scribbled handwriting: “Protect your family.”
Genrich tweeted a photo of the letter Thursday.
No further information has been made public by either the police department or the Mayor Genrich’s Office.
Chad Weininger, a candidate running for Green Bay mayor, released a statement Thursday condemning the threatening message and sharing that he also received a text message on March 17 threatening his family.
“There is no place in political discourse that should include threats of any kind,” Weininger said.
