KENOSHA, WI — July 31, 2020 — Josh Pade, Democratic candidate for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, announced he will host three virtual town halls with southeast Wisconsin community members to discuss critical issues before the primary election Tuesday, Aug. 11.


Josh Pade will moderate each town hall, and guests will discuss challenges they’re facing and what Congress can do to ease the burden. All 1st Congressional District voters are encouraged to join and submit questions virtually on Zoom and Facebook.


“Washington has ignored southeast Wisconsin for too long,” Josh Pade said. “We are desperate for a representative who will listen to working families and fight for universal healthcare, public education and Wisconsin farmers. I’m the only candidate in this race who isn’t backed by corporate special interests — I’m backed by the people of southeast Wisconsin, and that’s who I’ll work tirelessly for every day.”
