I am proud to have lived, worked, and been involved in this community for nearly half my life. As a teenager, I worked at several of our local businesses like Angeli’s, Schloegel’s, and Brothers Three. Upon arriving back to Marinette over four years ago, I immediately felt that I wanted to be part of the community in a greater way. I began to participate in a number of local organizations like the M&M Area Community Foundation where I now serve on two committees. From there I became involved in the #MyMarinetteMenominee movement and started a new career with a non-profit community & economic development organization. Thru my position, I was afforded the opportunity to participate in other organizations like The Menominee Downtown Business Association, Peshtigo Area Chamber of Commerce, and others working to further grow and develop our region.
Prior to that, my work experience includes Facilities, Construction & Project Management, (global) Logistics and Distribution, Account Management, and Marketing & Events.
I grew up in Middle Inlet, Wisconsin where I lived on a small farm. I graduated from Crivitz High School and attended NWTC focusing on Business Management. I’ve lived outside the area, first in the Chicago area, then Phoenix, AZ where I married and raised four children. We’re a military family with two sons having served in the armed forces. Our youngest is currently serving as a Petty Officer, Second Class in the US Navy as a Sonar Technician, while our other son is a medically retired US Marine Corp Sergeant serving two combat tours in the middle east. We have a daughter graduating from Arizona State University this spring with a degree in Nutrition and is starting her own baking business, and other daughter resides here with her family and is a supervisor for a locally owned cleaning company.
In my spare time, I dabble in photography and enjoy spending time with my family. We have a five-year-old grandson who we adore and spend quite a bit of time with. When not working on our home, we enjoy traveling and exploring. Our favorite is camping, hiking, and kayak in the local parks and of course eating and shopping at all of our local businesses.
My name is Roberta Davis, and I'm running to be YOUR Mayor.
