School Board Candidates Forum To Be Held in March

Six candidates are vying for three seats on the Greendale School Board in the April 2 election.

Greendale voters will have a chance next month to hear directly from School Board candidates and see where they stand on their issues.

The League of Women Voters and Greendale Chamber of Commerce are scheduling a forum for March. An exact date has not been set.

Six candidates are vying for three spots on the board. Incumbents Thomas Slota, Victoria McCormick and Melanie Kuzmanovic and challengers Kathleen Weid Vincent, Katie Mevis and Roger Dalkin will be on the ballot in the April 2 general election.

The top two vote-getters will serve three-year terms. The candidate coming in third will serve one year, filling the remainder of Jim Schutte’s term. Kuzmanovic was appointed by the board to fill Schutte’s position this summer.

The chamber and League of Women Voters will also hold a forum for Village Board candidates.

Is the League of Women Voters assisting in this? They usually coordinate with the chamber on these. I hope there is more than one forum - Patch, can you do an in-person candidate forum as well? Before anybody votes, they should hear from all of the candidates (in person). And this includes me...... Good luck to all.

not sure if League of Women Voters is involved. Will keep you posted if Patch is able to do a forum as well. We've gotten a couple requests so we'll see if we can put one together.

League of Women Voters is involved, just updated the story to reflect that.

I have to agree with Jason on this. The Greendale Patch said earlier this year they would try to host an internet forum for candidates. Say post a question a week for each to answer and then let people respond with some decorum ideally. Thoughts Mark and Candidates?

I'm looking forward to this forum and the others that are being discussed and planned. I hope to see many community members there - it is so important that the community engage and participate in this process.
