Richfield Candidate Forum September 8

Candidates forum scheduled for Sept. 8 in Richfield

    Washington County Eagle Forum will host a forum for candidates for Richfield Board of Trustees at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 8.

    The event will be held at the Richfield Elementary School, 3117 Holy Hill Road, Richfield.

    Randy Melchert, former state Assembly candidate and political analyst, will be moderating the forum. Melchert is a past legislative candidate and frequently appears on Wisconsin radio and television discussing civic affairs.

    The format will include an introductory statement by each candidate. Candidates will take turns answering pre-selected questions and will have time for a final statement.

    “Voters appreciate the opportunity to hear the viewpoints of the candidates running for the Village Board,” said Ginny Maziarka, president of Eagle Forum of Washington County.

    “This forum will educate voters on the role their village trustees play in the Richfield area, the philosophy of candidates and ensure that voters make an informed decision on Sept. 14.”

    While no questions from the floor will be taken, residents are encouraged to meet with candidates before or after the debate.

    The event is free and open to the public.
