I am one of the lucky few people in the city of Milwaukee to find not zero, not one, but two local races on the February 19 primary ballot, as I live in both the 14th aldermanic district and the 14th county supervisory district. (Most spring races--from County Executive to Supreme Court to court and county and city positions--have but one or two candidates, meaning no primaries.)
If you, like me, want to see all the candidates for the two different 14ths in a candidate forum, you're in luck: The Bay View Neighborhood Association and the Bay View Compass are teaming up to bring you just such a thing:
The Bay View Compass and the Bay Neighborhood Association are
sponsoring a candidate forum on Tuesday, February 12 at the Lake Express Terminal Lobby, located at 2330 S. Lincoln Memorial Drive.
The event begins at 7:00 pm and is open to the public.
Candidates for the contested Aldermanic District 14 seat (incumbent Tony Zielinski) and County Supervisor District 14 seat (incumbent Richard Nyklewicz, Jr., who is retiring) are forum participants.
Candidates for Aldermanic District 14 are Arthur Kimball, Andrew Reid, and Tony Zielinski and for County Supervisor District 14, Jason Haas, Steven Kraeger, Christopher Larson, and Sebastian Raclaw.
Candidates will be asked questions prepared by BVNA, the Bay View Compass, and from members of the audience. Bring a question your next County Supervisor and Alderman--this is your chance to quiz the candidates about the issues and policies that matter to you!
