Manitowoc City Hall Council Chambers 6th Congressional District and 25th Legislative District Candidate Forum. The League of Women Voters of Manitowoc County will be hosting a Candidate Forum on Thursday, October 27 at 7:00 pm in the Manitowoc City Hall Council Chambers. The forum will feature 6th Congressional District candidates Sarah Lloyd and Jeff Dahlke, and 25th Legislative District candidates Paul Tittl and Ron Kossik. Congressman Glenn Grothman was invited to participate but did not respond to certified letter or the calls to his campaign office.

Because we have two sets of candidates, we have a tight timeline. Our format for the evening will be for each candidate to give a one and a half minute opening statement followed by questions from audience members. Those questions are written on cards as people arrive and submitted to the moderator. Each answer will be limited to a minute and a half. We will end the evening with each candidate giving a one and a half minute closing statement. We will have a timekeeper to keep us all on track.

The event will be televised live on the Comcast local access channel.

The Congressional candidates' portion will be live streamed on Sheboygan's Facebook page as well as Sheboygan's website

Following the event the candidates will have a chance to mingle with the audience members. Light refreshments will be provided for this free event open to the public.

Suffragette Film. When all the excitement of our national election has subsided, come to Manitowoc City Hall at 900 Quay Street on Thursday, November 10th for an evening together to view the wonderful film Suffragette, a story about the struggle of the women in England to get the right to vote. It is a highly acclaimed film, and parallels the struggle the American women had. It will begin at 7:00 pm. There will be FREE popcorn, but bring your own beverage. Hope to see you all there. Bring as many friends as you would like for this very entertaining and relaxed evening.
