Don't forget Thursday's Elmbrook School Board candidate forum, 7pm
A reader forwarded me the following announcement from the Elmbrook School District regarding the coming candidate forum. (Parents of Elmbrook School students receive these monthly events notices, but residents without children in the district do not.)Last year, I attended the forum even though each candidate ran unopposed. I found it was still an good opportunity to get a feel for the candidates. This year we have three candidates running for each open seat. The forum on Thursday should help you to get a better idea of where each stands on the issues facing the Elmbrook School District, such as how to solve the challenge of increasing costs without increasing taxes. The primary is coming up fast: Feb. 17th.You may submit a question by emailing Dorothy Smaglick, email@example.com
Board of Education Candidate Forum to be Held
Candidates for the Elmbrook Board of Education seats up for election in April will participate in a candidate forum on Thursday, Feb. 5 at 7:00 p.m., at the Elmbrook Schools Central Administrative Office, 13780 Hope Street, Brookfield. The forum will be sponsored by the Elmbrook Parent Leadership Council.
Six individuals have declared candidacy for two seats (one at-large seat and one Area IV seat.) Because more than two candidates are currently running for each seat, a primary election will be held Tuesday, Feb.17 to determine who will advance to the election on Tuesday, April 7. At-large seat candidates are Katie Lemcke, Meg Wartman (incumbent), and Charles D. Wickens. Area IV seat candidates are Jean Lambert, Donald J. Moore, and Barry M. Wightman.
During the forum each candidate will present opening and closing comments, answers to predetermined questions from a moderator, and answers to questions from the audience. Elmbrook residents interested in submitting questions may send them to Elmbrook Parent Leadership Council representative Dorothy Smaglick, firstname.lastname@example.org . The forum will be taped and broadcast on the district's Time Warner Cable channels 13 and 96.
