Making Democracy Work

Calendar of Events

We sponsor meetings and events for the public and League members.

Date & Time        Place        Description
Saturday, March 10, 2018
10 - 11:30 a.m.
Common Council Chambers Candidate Forum for Common Council. Please join us for a moderated forum featuring candidates running for Common Council in the April 3rd Spring Election.

Candidates for Common Council Spring Election are: Aldermanic District 2: James Schulgit, incumbent Aldermanic District 4: Lynn Binnie, incumbent Councilmember at Large: Jim Allen, incumbent, and Brienne Diebolt-Brown

The league's candidate forum is a free public event where voters are invited to ask questions of the candidates on issues of importance to their daily lives and the Whitewater community.

Although only the Councilmember at Large seat is contested, the league invited the uncontested candidates to share their views as well.

League member Tom Drucker will moderate the forum. The forum will be broadcast live by Whitewater Community TV and made available for viewing in the weeks leading up to Election Day.

REPLAY: The City of Whitewater informed us that during the live broadcast of the event by Whitewater Community Television, an unintentional 10-minute glitch in the video feed took place. The audio was unaffected and while viewers could still hear the candidates, they could not see them.

The good news is that the glitch did not affect the rebroadcast video. The Candidate Forum for Common Council can be viewed in its entirety on Community TV 990 as well as on the City of Whitewater's website.

Common Council Chambers Fake News: Conjecture, Conspiracy and Consequences for America. Please join us for our March program when Professor Corey Davis of the University of Wisconsin--Whitewater Department of Communication will help us understand how the culture of rejecting that with which one disagrees came about and what kind of political future is in store for a country where the most common adjective in front of `news' is no longer `good' or `bad' but `fake'.

Annual Membership Meeting. Please join us for the Annual Meeting of the League of Women Voters - Whitewater Area. Brunch will be provided.

This has been a very active and productive year, and we will be taking a look at what we have accomplished. We will also approve a new budget for the upcoming year, as well as elect new officers.

We are always looking for program ideas from all of you, so come with questions and suggestions of areas we might deal with in our upcoming programs to "make democracy work" better in the Whitewater area.
