Judicial candidates to meet in Milwaukee Bar Association Forums

The Milwaukee Bar Association will host two judicial forums, one for the candidates seeking election to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, the other for the candidates seeking election to Milwaukee County Circuit Court Branch 45.

The forums are open to MBA members and the general public. All candidates have been invited to participate in the moderated forums and the format for both forums will allow for audience questions submitted to the moderators.

“It is the mission of the Milwaukee Bar Association to increase public awareness of the crucial role the law plays in the lives of the people of Milwaukee County,” says James D. Temmer, Executive Director of the MBA. “This forum provides an opportunity for our members and Milwaukee County residents to familiarize themselves with the judicial candidates and to be informed voters when they go to the polls for the primary on February 19.”
