On Thursday, October 9 Citizen Advocates for Public Education (CAPE) will be hosting its first Fall Education Forum to educate voters on candidates’ views prior to the November elections.
On October 9, CAPE is sponsoring its first ever Fall Education Forum. The purpose of the forum is to give you an opportunity to learn your candidates’ views on public education prior to the November election. The candidates will respond to questions sent to them in advance by CAPE, and there will be a question and answer time following.
Topics to be addressed include:
- What value do you see in our public schools?
- Should the voucher program be expanded throughout Wisconsin?
- How should adequate funding of our public schools be accomplished?
Where will the forum be held? Lake Mills Elementary School, 155 E. Pine Street, Lake Mills
When is the forum? Thursday, October 9, 2014, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
Who has been invited? Candidates for the 13th Senate District – Scott Fitzgerald and Michelle Zahn – and candidates for the 38th Assembly District – Joel Kleefisch and Tom Chojnacki.
Please share this invitation with your friends, and neighbors, and put this event on your calendar.
CAPE has sponsored a successful School Board Candidates’ Forum and The ABC’s of School Vouchers Forum and is looking forward to another informative and educational event.
While all four candidates (Scott Fitzgerald, Michelle Zahn, Joel Kleefisch, and Tom Chonacki) were invited to attend the forum, the Republican incumbents will be no-shows for the discussion on school vouchers in front of community members. Given everything they’ve done to negatively impact Wisconsin’s education system (voting to cut funding, voting to expand voucher schools), it’s no wonder Scott Fitzgerald and Joel Kleefisch don’t want to face voters and explain their records of rubber-stamping Gov. Walker’s horrendous education agenda.
