SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- The city of Sun Prairie has a new mayor.

City council members voted Tuesday night to appoint council member Jonathan Freund as mayor.

Freund has been on the council for 8 years.

“One of my first priorities as Mayor is to reach out to the local business community to ensure these businesses stay and grow in Sun Prairie and ensure we are doing all that we can to encourage additional business to choose Sun Prairie as their home.” Freund said in a news release.

“We also need to focus on what makes Sun Prairie a great place to live. Strengthening the city’s partnership with the School District, maintaining and focusing city government on the efficient delivery of core services, continuing our focus on Public Safety and developing a plan with Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department that provides 24x7 in station fire service,” Freund stated.

Freund replaces former mayor John Murray, who stepped down in April to focus more of his time on his family.
