We had an excellent turnout at the informational meeting on running for office! Panel participants were: Dan Bukiewicz, Mayor of Oak Creek; Doug Perry, School Board – South Milwaukee; Dennis McBride, Common Council – Wauwatosa and LaTonya Johnson, State Senator 6th District. Each panelist shared personal stories and insights on running a campaign. Emerge Wisconsin and Wisconsin Progress shared information on their programs that assist candidates on their campaigns.
The energy and excitement in the room was obvious by the questions asked and the plans to take back Wisconsin in 2018.
The event was sponsored by the Milwaukee Area Labor Council, WEAC and Citizen Action.
