The Lakeland College History Club and The Sheboygan Press are co-sponsoring a Sheboygan Mayoral Debate as the City of Sheboygan prepares for a historic mayoral recall election.
The debate is scheduled for Thursday, January 12, at the Sheboygan North High School Auditorium beginning at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
All eight candidates on the ballot have been invited to participate in the debate: Roberta Filicky-Peneski, Asher Heimermann, Mark Hermann, Jean Kittelson, Erik Neave, Bob Ryan, Randy Schwoerer and Terry Van Akkeren.
The primary election is set for Tuesday, January 17.
Rick Dodgson, assistant professor of history at Lakeland and the history club's advisor, will serve as moderator. Students from the history club will be asking questions of the candidates.
"There's a great deal of interest in this race locally, and our goal is to present an evening for Sheboygan voters to get a good look at these candidates before they vote," Dodgson said. "This should prove to be an interesting night."
For those unable to attend, the event will be streamed live online at www.sheboyganpress.com.
