2018 Candidate Questionnaires for the City of Whitewater Common Council

A candidate questionnaire was forwarded to candidates running for Whitewater Common Council seats in advance of the April 3 Spring Election. Candidates were given a full two weeks to complete the Questionnaire.

If you are curious about what motivates the candidates to run for office or seek another term, what they think the Common Council can do to restore a grocery store in Whitewater, provide the public library with the space it needs, or promote gun safety in our community, then the League encourages you to read their responses to these questions and many others before casting your vote.

Aldermanic District 2: James Schulgit (incumbent)

Aldermanic District 4: Lynn Binnie (incumbent)

Council Member at Large: Jim Allen (incumbent) and Brienne Dieboldt-Brown

NOTE: The League of Women Voters-Whitewater Area held our Common Council Candidate Forum on Saturday March 10, 2018 from 10 AM to 11:30 AM. 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.
