Trustee Candidates Will Debate Village Issues Next Week

All five candidates running in the Feb. 19 primary election have agreed to participate in a Patch candidates forum on Feb. 13.

Five candidates will be vying for two spots on the Whitefish Bay Village Board in the April election, but only four will make it past the primary election on Feb. 19.

To ensure that residents are fully-informed about the candidates and their positions on important local issues, Whitefish Bay Patch has organized a candidates forum with all five trustee candidates on Feb. 13 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Whitefish Bay Women's Club. 

The five candidates running for village trustee are incumbent Trustee Jay Miller, Robert Crawford, Kenneth Wysocky, Carl Fuda and Kevin McMahon.

Candidates will be allowed to make opening and closing statements, respond to questions from Patch editors and field questions posed by members of the audience. Audience members will be given index cards to write their questions on, and the moderator will determine which questions will be asked of the candidates.

Please invite your friends and see your local democracy in action. Facebook users can RSVP on the Facebook event page.

Unfortunately scheduled against the School Board meeting.

Good point and I believe it's going to be a school board meeting that will be attended heavily by those who are concerned about the Milestones program. Jeff, is it too late to try and reschedule the forum for another night? I would imagine there are people who would like to be in attendance for both the school board meeting and the candidates forum.

Yes, unfortunately, it was the only date that was agreeable to all five of the candidates. The only other possibilities were that Friday night, over the weekend, or on the night before the election. I didn't ask the candidates about those dates but assumed they would be just as inconvenient for everyone.
