WE THE PEOPLE WISCONSIN – YOU BE THE JUDGE

03/20/13

We The People Wisconsin is once again offering a chance for citizens to question the candidate for Wisconsin Supreme Court. As has become part of the tradition of the roughly 20 year old civic journalism project, We The People partners have recruited citizens to question the candidates in a debate setting this Friday evening at the Wisconsin State Bar Center in Madison. We’ve gotten a look at some of the questions and we’re impressed with both the topics and the tone.


We’ve long considered Supreme Court elections terribly important, and for reasons beyond the now exaggerated collegiality issues. These people make decisions that affect the lives of every one us. We need out best and brightest on the Court.

Friday’s debate will air on WISC TV Sunday morning at 10 a-m, and on TVW Sunday evening at nine. We invite you to tune in and watch how the candidates respond when the citizens are the judges.
