This event will feature a panel of Community Organizers, including a representative from RacinePost, who will moderate questions for the candidates on the subjects of the Economy, Environment, Safety & Quality of Life, and Personal Vision & Management Style.
Community Organizations from the Racine area have been invited to submit questions for the candidates in the Feb. 7 primary for mayor.
The event will also feature a Community Organization Expo prior to the forum. Dozens of organizations will be represented to meet the public and candidates and share their work and goals.
The Expo will begin 6pm and the Candidate Forum will follow at 7 p.m. sharp in the Great Lakes Room. Attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable item of food to benefit the Racine County Food Bank.
For more information please see the Mayoral Candidate Forum page on the C4C website here.
Update: John Dickert's campaign backed Community for Change's plans for a food drive by reminding attendees to bring a non-perishable food item. In a press release, Dickert said:
“One of the main points of my campaign is creating partnerships to rebuild Racine’s neighborhoods. This event is an excellent opportunity for individuals to express their personal dedication through a concerted effort to fill Racine’s food pantries. Racine’s food pantries are being used now more than ever, and this effort is just the beginning of bringing a sense of community back."Organizations participating in the Expo, as of March 22, are:
