The Lodi Optimist Club will sponsor a 42nd Assembly District special election candidate forum on Wednesday, May 30 from 7 – 8:15 p.m. in the Large Group Instruction (LGI) room at Lodi High School, 1100 Sauk St., Lodi.

Democrat Ann Groves-Lloyd of Lodi, Republican Jon Plumer of Lodi and Independent Gene Rubenstein of Pardeeville have all confirmed their commitment to attend the forum.

Candidates will provide opening and closing statements and respond to questions from audience members. Optimist member Bill Haupt will serve as moderator.

For the past two decades, the Lodi Optimist Club has sponsored candidate forums, typically in partnership with the administrators, faculty and students at Lodi High. In addition to being a “Friend of Youth,” Optimist clubs are encouraged in their mission statement to “promote an active interest in good government and civic affairs” in their communities.

The special election will be Tuesday, June 12.
