The League of Women Voters-Whitewater Area and the League of Women Voters of Janesville, with the support of the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin co-sponsored a virtual candidate forum on September 26, 2020, 10-11 a.m. for the State Assembly District 43 race with candidates for AD43, Don Vruwink (incumbent Democrat) and Beth Drew (challenger Republican).
If you missed it, you can watch the replay on Facebook.
In-person candidate forums rely on questions presented to the candidates in real time by voters in attendance, Because this forum will be virtual out of concern for the health and safety of all involved, we solicited candidate questions from voters in Assembly District 43 in advance of the forum date through a Google form and by mail.
In addition to questions received in advance, questions were submitted during the one-hour virtual forum. Candidate questions prepared jointly by the LWV-Whitewater Area and LWV Janesville were also used. The League does not accept questions targeted to specific candidates.
The League is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
