League of Women Voters to Host Assembly District 29 Forum

September 18, 2018 - 11:25am

MENOMONIE - League of Women Voters of Greater Chippewa Valley this week announced a forum for the three candidates for Assembly District 29 on Sept. 25, 6:30 p.m. in the community room of the Judicial Center, 615 Stokke Parkway, Menomonie. Candidates to represent Assembly District 29 are: Republican Rob Stafsholt, Libertarian Brian Corriea and Democrat John Calabrese.

The order for candidates’ presentations will be determined by lot. Each candidate will make a brief opening statement. Following their statements, candidates will answer questions collected from the public attending the forum. The questions may be directed to the candidates at large or to a specific candidate, with every candidate having an opportunity to respond. The LWV-GCV provides a moderator, time-keeper, and facilitators.

The current Representative is Rob Stafsholt, who has served in that capacity for one term. Public interest in this fall’s election on Tuesday, Nov. 6 is high for all contested offices, according to officials.
