Paul Henningsen had a passion for service, neighborhood revitalization
Statement from Alderman Robert J. Bauman October 20, 2016
I was surprised and saddened to learn of the passing of Paul Henningsen, who preceded me in this office.
Anyone who knew Paul could appreciate and admire his passion for social justice and economic development. His work at City Hall and in the district was focused on making improvements where needed, and he believed in the importance and value of neighborhood revitalization. For example, he was largely responsible for the revitalization of the Concordia neighborhood where I now live. We became friends and worked on several issues after my election in 2004 – that despite having been election opponents several times during the 1990s.
I will not forget his many contributions and his service to our city.
I offer my sincere condolences to his loved ones and friends.
