According to packers.com, “The Packers will present two candidates for shareholder vote at the Annual Meeting to join the Packers Board of Directors: Michael Alexander and Bill Jartz.

‘We’re excited to present two nominees for a vote of our shareholders,’ said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. ‘Michael’s leadership at UW-Green Bay has enhanced the university’s role as a community resource and his perspective will be a valuable addition to the Board. Bill has shared his talents with our community for decades as a newscaster and on gamedays at Lambeau Field and we are looking forward to having his voice on our Board, as well. Bill’s experience playing football at Northwestern University will also be helpful to us.'”
