The mayoral forum situation continues to change. We've just received word (below) that Leadership Racine Alumni Association and Young Professionals of Racine have cancelled their previously scheduled mayoral forum, and will partner with Community for Change at that organization's forum, April 23, 6:30 p.m., at Gateway Technical College.
Furthermore, that "forum" is now being called a "debate." As in, "Let's get ready to rumble."
At the same time, we heard this morning from Bob Turner's office that he has agreed to participate in two other forums, one at CATI with RCEDC/RAMAC (April 20; the meeting begins at 7:30 a.m. with the forum scheduled for 8 a.m.; space is limited to 100 RCEDC members) and the other at the Veterans' Center (April 27 at 6 p.m., at 820 Main St.)
Here's the note from Leadership Racine and YPR:
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Mayoral Forum originally scheduled for April 20 at Memorial Hall will no longer occur. Representatives from Leadership Racine Alumni Association (LRAA) and Young Professionals of Racine (YPR) feel that the best manner to serve the community is to move ahead in a different direction. Both campaigns have been contacted and YPR and LRAA wish them well in their endeavors.
In order to assure that the voices of the organizations are represented and heard, LRAA and YPR will be partnering with the Community for Change forum on Thursday, April 23. We will work together to establish a forum to best inform the Racine community.
