The Political Science Club at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley is hosting an “8th Congressional District Candidate Forum” featuring candidates Terri McCormick, Roger Roth and Marc Trager, on Monday, April 12, from noon to 1:00 p.m.  The Forum is being held in room #1229, located in the center of the campus. The Forum is free and open to the public with unreserved seating.

George Waller, senior lecturer in Political Science at the UWFox campus, will be the forum facilitator and moderator.

Stephen Behnke, a first year student from Appleton and president of the UWFox Political Science Club, has been instrumental in bringing the forum to UWFox. "We’re working to get our students in contact with who wants to represent them,” he said. “This fall, we’ll have another forum with the 8th Congressional District incumbent, Dr. Steve Kagen, and the survivor of the spring primary.

“This is not a debate,” Behnke emphasized. “It’s a forum with pressure than a debate typically has. I expect more open dialogue as well as an exchange of ideas.”

For more information about the candidates’ forum, contact Waller at 920-832-2856 or email george.waller@uwc.edu.
