GREEN BAY – The 2022 race for District 3 on the Brown County Board will look familiar to people who followed the race in 2020: It’s again a matchup of Amanda Chu and Andy NIcholson.

The most significant difference: Chu is now the incumbent. She unseated Nicholson in 2020.

The top vote-getter will win a two-year term representing District 3, on Green Bay’s southeast side.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette asked each candidate background information. We asked them five questions, with a 100-word limit for the first four and 200 words for the fifth. Responses have been edited in some cases to remove unverified claims and attacks on an opponent that did not directly address the question.
