Not sure who to vote for? Patch and the League of Women Voters are hosting several state Senate and Assembly candidates at a forum at the Greenfield Community Center.

Just days before the Nov. 6 election, several candidates running for state Senate and Assembly seats will share their views at a candidates forum from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Greenfield Community Center, 7215 W. Cold Spring Road, Greenfield.

Candidates invited to the forum are:

  • Democrat Jim Ward and Republican state Sen. Mary Lazich, running in the 28th Senate District;
  • Democrat Kathleen Vincent and  Republican state Rep. Jeff Stone, running in the 82nd Assembly District;
  • Democrat Jim Brownlow and Republican state Rep. David Craig, running in the 83rd Assembly District;
  • and Democrat Jesse Roelke and Republican state Rep. Mike Kuglitsch, running in the 84th Assembly District.

As of Oct. 29, Ward, Lazich, Vincent, Stone and Brownlow have confirmed they will attend the forum.

Candidates will field questions from a moderator as well as audience members.

The free forum, which is open to the public, is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Milwaukee County and Patch.com.

Grizzley Adams Or the Poor. Or the Elderly. Or Out of State Students. We should be expanding voting to all citizens. Not searching for ways to limit it. This is a big, free country. Stop limiting its rights like some commodity that will run out.

Voter ID fraud paranoia is a vomited out by ALEC and the Koch Brothers. I'm going to the forum in Greenfield to listen to Kathy Weid-Vincent debate the Jim Crow author of the graveyard bound voter ID law and Jim Ward to debate the dim bulb of the mid-west. I will be delivering some more of "comforting" posts to you Neo-Selmaites when I return.

If an elderly person was born in a rural area of the former Confederacy, it is likely his or her birth certificate could not be located. Some county clerks down there couldn't pass the same literacy test that was required for blacks to vote.

Yes. One person - One vote. Absolutely. Not One person - turned away from voting. That is the Conservatinve effort, to date. Don't vote the way I want - can't vote. Not American.
