On Sunday morning, Scott Michalak, Democratic candidate for Assembly District 38, shared “perhaps the most important post of this campaign” on his campaign’s Facebook page. He was referring to his acceptance of the invite to debate incumbent Joel Kleefisch (R), as part of a six-candidate debate for Assembly Districts 33, 38 and 43, scheduled for October 3rd.
The Daily Union reports:
A debate between candidates seeking office in three of Jefferson County’s four state Assembly districts will be held Wednesday, Oct. 3, in Jefferson.
The event is slated for 7 p.m. in the Puerner Room of the Fort Community Credit Union. It is being co-sponsored by the Jefferson and Fort Atkinson chambers of commerce, the Daily Jefferson County Union and WFAW Radio.
Mainstream candidates for the Nov. 6 election in the 33rd, 38th and 43rd state Assembly districts have been invited to participate in the debate, which will be aired live on WFAW. The public is encouraged to attend.
You can email any questions you’d like to be asked at the debate to any one of the sponsors (see Daily Union).

As Scott Michalak said at his campaign kickoff:
“I’m a real middle class worker, like my predecessor Andy Jorgenson…I best reflect the concerns of the average Wisconsinite who made $37,000 last year. I don’t think a billionaire like my opponent puts himself in the same mindset. He doesn’t worry how hard you have to work to pay your mortgage, your rent, your light bill, your utility bills, your state and local property tax bills; I think he’s more concerned with how much money the wealthy can make by getting a tax cut.”
Go, Scott Michalak, go!
