Two Community Agencies Partner Host Legislative Forum
MILWAUKEE, WI—The Wisconsin African American Tobacco Prevention Network (WAATPN) partnered with the Wisconsin Black Chamber of Commerce to host a legislative forum for constituents living in the Sixth Senate District on Wednesday, July 25, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Coffee Makes U Black Café, located at 2803 North Teutonia Avenue.
Candidates running for the Sixth Senate seat left vacant by G. Spencer Coggs, who vacated his seat to become the City of Milwaukee Treasurer, include: State Rep. Elizabeth Coggs (D); Milwaukee County Supervisor Nikiya Harris (D); Milwaukee County Supervisor Michael Mayo (D); Allyn Monroe Swan (D); and Delta Triplett (D). All candidates have confirmed their attendance except County Supervisor Michael Mayo.
Eric Von, WMCS Talk Show Host of “Morning Magazine,” moderated the legislative forum, which will address key constituent concerns, as well as some of the myriad of health issues, economic challenges and other concerns of the WAATPN and the WBCC.
“It’s important that we provide this opportunity to the community to hear their concerns, as well as learn what the candidates expect to do to address some of the pressing crime, health, economic and education concerns facing this constituency, if they are elected,” said Lorraine Lathen, spokesperson for WAATPN.
The Sixth Senate District Democratic primary election will be held on August 14th, and the general election is on November 6th. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Michael Campbell at 414-551-2524 or via email at [email protected]
