PROFS to Host Candidate Forums

W_crest_banner_Capitol_V_02PROFS will host two public forums featuring Democratic candidates in newly-drawn legislative districts just outside Madison. Legislative primaries in Wisconsin will now be held on the second Tuesday in August — this year, August 14. The date was moved from September as part of Act 23 passed last year.

80th Assembly District — The newly-drawn 80th AD now includes parts of Verona, Mt. Horeb, Oregon, Belleville, New Glarus, Blue Mounds, Ridgeway, and Barneveld. The Democratic primary includes Charles Uphoff, a former member of the Fitchburg City Council and Oregon School Board; former State Representative Joe Wineke; and Representative Sondy-Pope Roberts, who currently represents the 79th Assembly District. Redistricting has put her in the 80th.

PROFS will host a forum featuring these candidates at 7 pm on Monday, July 30 at the Verona Senior Center, 108 Paoli Street. The forum will allow for opening and closing statements and questions from a moderator. Refreshments will be served.

47th Assembly District — The newly-drawn 47th AD now includes parts of Fitchburg, McFarland, and Monona. Two Democrats will be on the August 14 ballot — Amanda Hall, a recent law school graduate and Robb Kahl, attorney and former mayor of Monona.

The forum featuring these candidates will be held at 7 pm on Wednesday, August 1 at the Fitchburg Community Center, 5510 Lacy Road. The forum will allow for opening and closing statements and questions from a moderator. Refreshments will be served.

    For the August 1 candidate forum for the 47th Assembly District, I have noticed the Cap Times, State Journal, League of Women Voters, McFarland Thistle, Herald Independent, etc have provided candidates with the opportunity to respond to questions and provide voters with information. One candidate has responded to all of these, one has not. I would like to know why the candidates have, or have not, chosen to respond to these requests.
