Lakeland College and The Sheboygan Press are partnering again to bring Sheboygan voters a chance to hear from the candidates in the city's historic recall election.
Sheboygan Mayor Bob Ryan and challenger Terry Van Akkeren will meet for an evening of discussion about Sheboygan's future on Thursday, Feb. 9, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Weill Center in downtown Sheboygan.
Ryan and Van Akkeren face one another in Sheboygan's mayoral election on Tuesday, Feb. 21.
Rick Dodgson, assistant professor of history at Lakeland, will moderate the interactive evening, which will include questions from audience members. The event is free and open to the public. The Sheboygan Press will live stream the event on its website, www.sheboyganpress.com, and WSCS will record the event for multiple airings.
"The primary debate involved eight candidates and meant a more structured evening, although we received a lot of feedback from voters that they learned a lot about the candidates," Dodgson said. "This event will allow voters to ask their questions, and we'll listen to the remaining two candidates engage in a genuine discussion about topics that are important to Sheboygan voters.
"We're happy to be partnering with The Sheboygan Press in one of Sheboygan's truly special venues to offer this opportunity for Sheboygan residents to get involved and become better informed."
