For the first time since the onset of the pandemic, you will be able to hear from political candidates in-person at a forum ahead of the August primary.
The Door County League of Women Voters has invited State Rep. Joel Kitchens, Kewaunee County Board Supervisor Milt Swagel, and Baileys Harbor Town Supervisor Roberta Thelen to discuss the issues affecting Assembly District 1. The First Assembly District covers Door, Kewaunee, and parts of Manitowoc and Brown counties. Kitchens and Swagel are currently pitted against each other for the Republican nomination, while Thelen is running unopposed for the Democrats. The forum is scheduled for July 16th at Southern Door High School Library, beginning at 9 a.m. Pending COVID-19 concerns, this could be the first in-person candidate forum since the pandemic. The Door County League of Women Voters will post a link to their website and Facebook after its conclusion.
