(LWV-Whitewater Area press release) The League of Women Voters-Whitewater Area will be hosting two virtual candidate forums on Saturday, March 13, 2021 in advance of the April 6 Spring Election. The first forum, for City of Whitewater Common Council candidates, will be held in the morning, 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. The second forum, for WUSD School Board candidates, will be held in the afternoon, 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m..
All candidates for Common Council, Carol McCormick (District 1), Brienne Diebolt-Brown (District 3), Greg Majkrzak (District 5), Neil Hicks (District 5), Lisa Dawsey Smith (At-Large Seat), and Daniel Machalik (At-Large Seat) and all candidates for the WUSD Board, Tom Ganser, Larry Kachel, Andrea M.
