The League partnered with the NAACP Young Adult Committee and the Center for Progressive Leadership to throw the livest candidate forum Milwaukee had to offer. The event was held at the Milwaukee Brotherhood of Fire Fighters Hall. Though only some of the candidates running for office could join us, the discussion was interactive and on point. The candidates in attendance were Ed Fallone for State Supreme Court Judge, Khalif Rainey and Ravae Sinclair, both running for 2nd District County Supervisor, Donald Pridemore for Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Tatianna Joseph for Superintendent of Public Instruction. Candidates running unopposed and newly-elected officials stopped through to support as well.
Candidates gave constituents the opportunity to hear their views, goals, and visions for the different seats that make our city’s day-to-day decisions. We are a non-partisan organization and the forum gave attendees a glimpse into the minds and hearts of those competing to serve us. The buck doesn’t stop there – these are also the candidates whom we’ll have to hold accountable once in office.
Milele Coggs, 6th Aldermanic District representative, was in the building to speak about thei importance of keeping same-day voter registration while DJ Willie Shakes turned out oldies but goodies on the turntables. The event was hosted by community organizer, Jayme Montgomery Baker, and the politically-charged Sherwin Hughes from 860am. The showed up and showed out as our conductors for the night.
The forum was very informational and swagged out “At da Same D*** Time”
