Forward Kenosha and Our Wisconsin Revolution recently announced we would be cohosting a CD1 Forum featuring the democratic primary candidates, Cathy Myers and Randy Bryce on October 4. Unfortunately, last week the Bryce campaign declined the formal invitation to the CD1 Primary Forum, citing concerns in timing as well as the possibility of other candidates jumping into the race. After working with both primary campaigns for a number of weeks, reaching an agreement on all aspects of the format, as well as getting verbal commitments from both, we are disappointed to cancel the forum.
Forward Kenosha and Our Wisconsin Revolution have another CD1 Forum scheduled for April 2018. Both campaigns have indicated a willingness to participate in a forum in the future, and we look forward to that event. We remain committed to bringing impartial information to our community on this race and others.
In light of the schedule changes, we have moved up an event that was previously scheduled for later in the year. Forward Kenosha and Our Wisconsin Revolution will be co-hosting “From Resistance to Governance, the Future of Progressive Politics in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District” on October 4th. The panel will feature current elected officials from across the district discussing issues that are facing us now. We strongly believe the focus should remain steady on the people of CD1 and issues that affect our day to day lives. You can find more information about the event here.
