Mayor's Losing His Voice

Elizabeth Duncan, the spokeswoman for Mayor Dave Bieter, is headed for new pastures. We can't say if they're greener yet, because she hasn't determined that part.

Duncan's last day is set for January 18, she told BW this morning. She announced her exit shortly after the November elections. Bieter defeated City Councilor Jim Tibbs in the Nov. 7 vote.

But Duncan, a former television news reporter, says she's not leaving to pursue a definite goal, she said.

"Luckily, I'm in a position where I can hang out and look around for a couple of months," Duncan told BW.

The mayor's office is developing a list of candidates for her replacement, but no names were offered.
