What: Racine Gubernatorial Forum
When: Wednesday, May 30 at 6 p.m.
Where: Dr. John Bryant Center, 601 21st St, Racine, Wisconsin 53403
Who: Our Wisconsin Revolution, Wisconsin Working Families Party, Wisconsin’s Choice campaign, and members of the Racine community
RACINE — The Wisconsin’s Choice campaign — a partnership between Our Wisconsin Revolution and the Wisconsin Working Families Party — is holding a Racine Gubernatorial Forum to discuss the race to be Wisconsin’s next governor.
Wisconsin’s Choice is co-hosting the event alongside local elected officials Nick Demske, Racine County Board Supervisor, 1st District; Fabi Maldonado, Racine County Board Supervisor, 2nd District; and Alderman John Tate II.
More than 50 concerned citizens will attend. Activists contend that Wisconsin politics are dictated by and for the wealthy, while the rest of us fall behind. Confirmed candidates include Matt Flynn, Andy Gronik, Mike McCabe, Mahlon Mitchell, Kelda Roys, and Rep. Dana Wachs.
The campaign is bringing voters together to elect a people’s champion as governor this November. Through a series of three votes, Wisconsin’s Choice is narrowing the field to find this candidate who will fight for the many — not just the few. The Racine forum comes directly before the group’s second round vote, which will narrow the field of candidates from nine to four.
The Racine Gubernatorial Forum is a place where community members can come together to discuss key issues in the Racine area. Participants will “interview” gubernatorial candidates by asking questions about the issues that matter to working families — including immigration, healthcare, racial justice, and raising wages for all workers.
