Racial disparities, homelessness, poverty were some of the topics the public asked Madison’s mayoral candidates on Wednesday night. Incumbent Paul Soglin, and challengers Scott Resnick, Bridget Maniaci, Christopher Daly, and Richard Brown answered questions for two and a half hours, an extra hour beyond what the forum was scheduled to run. The candidate forum at the Fountain of Life Covenant Church was scheduled to go from 6:30-8pm, but finished after 9pm.
The primary election is Tuesday, February 17th. The two candidates with the highest vote totals will advance to the general election on April 7th. To learn where you vote, visit myvote.wi.gov or call 866-VOTE-WIS.
The Madison Mayoral Forum is sponsored by WORT 89.9 FM, Isthmus, Fountain of Life Covenant Church, Dane County NAACP, Race to Equity Project, and Coalition of Wisconsin Aging Groups.
