Candidate Forums

Posted on: April 5th, 2018 by Robert Ingraham

WSCS partnered with the Sheboygan Branch of American Association of University Women and the League of Women Voters-Sheboygan County to broadcast eight candidate forums, held at mead Public Library.  The forums features the candidates for five aldermanic districts in the City of Sheboygan, two county supervisor district races and the candidates for the three open seats on the Sheboygan Area School Board.

Sveral members of the station’s staff worked to record each of the events, quickly get the programs ready, and schedlue the replays to air ahead of the spring election on April 3.  Seven episodes were created and each was televised at least 10 times, nearly 84 hours of programming, during the week leading up to election day.  The forums were also posted online so citizens could watch at their convienence.
