The major candidates in the race for Milwaukee County Executive will make their first joint appearance Friday, Jan. 21, at Marquette University Law School during a forum co-sponsored by the Law School and the Milwaukee Press Club.
The event is scheduled from Noon to 1:15 p.m. and will be held in the Appellate Courtroom of Eckstein Hall, which is located at 1215 W. Michigan Street.
Invitations to the forum have been extended to philanthropist Chris Abele, interim Milwaukee County Executive Lee Holloway, State Rep. Jeff Stone and former State Sen. Jim Sullivan. The candidates will be questioned by a panel of Milwaukee journalists.
The candidates will square off in a Feb. 15 primary. The top two contenders will advance to the April 5 general election. Public admission to the candidate forum is free, but seating is limited, and pre-registration is suggested. A light lunch will be served.
