County plans permanent tribute to 'natural leader' Peter Hansen by renaming County Board room

UNION GROVE — Peter Hansen, a business owner who rose to the highest levels of Racine County government, is being remembered as a selfless public servant.
Hansen, who served more than 30 years in local and county government, including as county board chairman and county executive, died April 27 at the age of 72 following a three-year battle with cancer.
In recognition of Hansen’s years of service, county officials are considering renaming the County Board meeting room as the the Peter L. Hansen Racine County Board Chambers.
Just two days before Hansen died, he was visited at his home in Union Grove by a who’s who of Racine County politics, including County Executive Jonathan Delagrave, who told Hansen of the proposed renaming honor.
