Republican Women to host candidate forum on Aug. 6

The in-person forum will be held at Best Western Plus – Madison at 6:30 p.m. This event also will available virtually.

“We are excited to host this opportunity for residents to get more information and a better understanding of each of the candidates,” Sheila Banister said. Banister is President of Republic Women of Madison.

“COVID19 has made so many things difficult this year and that includes our electoral process. We wanted to create an opportunity that enables our citizens to meet the candidates and make an informed decision,” Banister said. “We think this combo is a perfect solution.”

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the in-person event will have limited seating. Club members will have first dibs at seating, followed by additional seats open to the public beginning July 31. Guests must make reservations, given on a first-come, first-served basis. For a reservation, email rsvp@rwmadison.org.

Attendees must observe social distancing practices, including wearing masks.

Anyone who doesn’t attend the forum in person can watch the event with Zoom. The link will be available on Aug. 6 at 6 p.m. Visit rwmadison.org and click the “Meet the Candidates” graphic, or visit Facebook/Republican Women of Madison.

“We highly encourage participants to log in early to ensure their connectivity. Anyone logging in at 6:30 p.m. or later may experience a delay in admittance to the broadcast,” Banister said.

“We see this forum as the people’s forum,” Banister said. “We want to ask the hard questions that weigh on the minds of our residents; that is why the majority of the forum will be addressing questions from the community.”

RWM encourages residents to submit their questions about the city for candidate comments. To submit a question, email info@rwmadison.org and include your name and district number.
