We would like to recommend Tim Tewalt to the Eau Claire City Councel for another term. Tim is an honest, deep thinker whose concern for the welfare of Eau Claire citizens has served us well.

Tim, I wanted to let you know that I plan to vote and recommend you for the upcoming city council election. I have moved to this town 8 years ago and met you prior to your interim position on the city council. I was pleased to hear you taking this opportunity to fill the vacancy while maintaining your full-time position. You are one that understands people from all economic levels and belief systems. Most importantly, you take time to seek and understand any voice. I am pleased that you have been this voice on the council to help make fiscally responsible decisions around reasonable requests and proposals. Thank you for your services and the time you spend with this community. Sincerely,
I wholeheartedly endorse Tim Tewalt for re-election to Eau Claire’s City Council. Over the last year, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Mr. Tewalt as the council liaison to the library board of trustees and have experienced firsthand his commitment to transparency and fairness in public service. In addition, Mr. Tewalt enthusiastically supported the development of the Dabble Box makerspace, and other projects focused on innovation and building community partnerships. Council Tewalt believes when people keep learning throughout their lives their community is stronger and more resilient.

I have known Mr. Tewalt for nearly 12 years, having worked alongside his wife, Cindy, in a professional capacity for most of them. In doing so, I’ve been privy to countless anecdotal stories related to the character of Mr. Tewalt in his teaching capacity at CVTC; his devotion and concern to his immediate and extended family; to his Christian faith; and in more recent times, his compassion and passion for serving the Eau Claire community as a Council member. Beyond the anecdotal accounts, I’ve been in the presence of Mr. Tewalt and engaged with him a number of times over the 12 years I’ve known his family — and he is always personable, pleasant, considerate, and interested in the lives of those he’s with.
It is my opinion that Mr. Tewalt will continue to serve the Eau Claire community in a positive way, and therefore would strongly recommend him for another term. The greatest individuals for public servant jobs are those who possess a character makeup which has them concerned more for others, than for themselves. Mr. Tewalt is just that type of person.
Tim is a person that can be trusted to do what he says he will do. He is hard working and has great ideas. He listens to the concerns that his constituents have and acts on them. He doesn’t just nod in agreement and then do nothing. He takes in to account all viewpoints and truly tries to make the best decision for the people in his district and the wider community. I have known Tim for many years and know these things to be a fact.
We have known Tim Tewalt for many years & know him to be an intelligent & reasonable person. We highly recommend Tim Tewalt to serve on the Eau Claire City Council.

I highly recommend Tim Tewalt for his continued service on the Eau Claire City Council. Tim is a man of integrity that I trust to help meet the needs of our city. I have seen him out speaking to neighbors, so I know he is listening to the individuals in our district and is concerned about serving the greater good of Eau Claire.
Tim Tewalt was appointed to the City Council following my husband Dave Duax’s passing. Tim is a born leader, a man of integrity with excellent judgment. His desire is to serve Eau Claire for the good of all citizens is admirable and important to Eau Claire’s growth. It is my pleasure to give Tim my highest recommendation for reelection to Eau Claire’s City Council.
Kathryn Proctor Duax
I respect the experienced leadership of my fellow City Council Members seeking re-election this spring. During our service together on the City Council I have found them to be thoughtful public servants who are motivated by nothing less than advancing the common good in Eau Claire.
President, Eau Claire City Council
I’ve enjoyed serving on City Council with Tim Tewalt, he had big shoes to fill when he was appointed to fill the seat of Dave Duax. Tim has done an excellent job and I find his preparation for meetings and the real world knowledge and experience he brings, from his position at the Chippewa Valley Technical college, to be a great addition to the Eau Claire City Council.

Why I’m Running
After raising his family in Eau Claire, Tim answered the call to give back to the city he calls “Home”. Eau Claire has been a premium place to grow his family as it is filled with good schools, great events and progressive action. He would like Eau Claire to be a place where future families will be proud to call Eau Claire their home.
Tim’s collaborative skills are conducive to working with Council members and city employees. He listens and is fair, sees the big picture, and believes in being a wise steward of resources to help Eau Claire stay prosperous.
While serving Eau Claire’s North side, he has advocated for the new Fire Station that is being built to keep families safe with continued quick response time. A Dog Park will soon be completed on the North Side later this year, a proposal that came to fruition.
Tim has been involved with decisions that the City Council has made, including a new Public Transit Transfer Station, the Haymarket Plaza and Jeffers Park development which includes softball fields, playground and pavilion. Tim serves on the Library Committee and a recent move to eliminate fines results in improving access and eliminating barriers that kept those with overdue fines away from checking out materials.
Tim can listen, take in all points and is fair in his decisions. As a problem solver by trade, he looks at all aspects of the discussion. He is a forward thinker as he looks at options and reasoning.
Tim addresses the issues without being “political” as he has no agenda except for the betterment of Eau Claire.
Transparency and honesty is of utmost importance to Tim.
Tim has a “Can Do” attitude and combined with his clear and practical thinking, can give a fresh look at the issues that come to the City Council. Tim also brings his sense of humor to the Council and is eager to learn more and serve again.
Meet Tim Tewalt
Tim Tewalt was appointed to the Eau Claire City Council to serve District One in June 2015 due to the unexpected vacancy of this seat. With the unfortunate passing of long time city leader and Councilman Dave Duax, Tim was approached by Dave’s widow Kathryn to consider filling out the term. Tim considered this a time to give back to the city that he has grown to love and appreciate since moving to Eau Claire in 1991.
Tim’s training and vocation has been one of solving problems. Beginning as a Field Service Technician in the electronics industry, he soon discovered becoming a trainer and teacher was his passion. Cray Research drew him to this region in the late 1980s. He then was fortunate to work at CVTC where he continues to help solve problems while teaching maintenance and troubleshooting equipment in the Industrial Mechanics Department.
Tim has been introduced to the City Council policies and procedures since his appointment and would like to continue what he has started. Listening to constituents and learning from current City Council members and City Leaders has been proven to be one of Tim’s passions.
Tim is married to Cindy and adult children Peter and Elizabeth are both North High School grads and both beginning their careers in the Minneapolis area after graduating from college.
