The Whitefish Bay School Board election coming up on April 3 may be uncontested, but it is still important to know who will be making educational policy decisions for the next three years.
Advocates For Education has held School Board candidate forums ever since the organization was formed in 1994, and the organization will continue to provide that opportunity this year with a candidate meet-and-greet event at 7 p.m. Monday at the Whitefish Bay Women's Club.
The three candidates running for the three seats are incumbent Kathy Rogers, incumbent Pamela Woodard and newcomer Anne Berleman Kearney. Full candidate bios can be viewed here.
Advocates For Education President Liz Sanders said the candidate meet-and-greet event will be somewhat more relaxed than a typical candidate forum because the race is uncontested, but it will give voters an opportunity to have a dialogue about issues concerning the School Board.
"Despite the fact that it's an uncontested race, we still think it's important for people to meet the candidates, learn where they stand on the issues and get to know them as people," Sanders said.
Parking is available and refreshments will be served.
