April 2, 2019 Spring Election

The League of Women Voters of the Whitewater Area held two Candidate Forums on Saturday, March 9, in the Whitewater City Hall Council Chambers in advance of the April 2 Spring Election.

Replays are available online for the Whitewater Common Council Forum and the Whitewater School Board Forum.

In addition to the forums, the LWV - Whitewater Area Board developed a Candidate Questionnaire that we invited all candidates to complete. Responses were posted at the same time on the League's website, on Monday, March 11. If a Candidate elected not to participate in the Questionnaire, the words "No response received" will be placed next to their name.
