Last week, some Riponites learned a little more about whom they may vote for next week.

Six of the eight candidates who will face off in a School Board primary Tuesday, Feb. 21 participated in a public forum last Wednesday evening.

Sharing their thoughts were challengers Jennifer Vande Brink Dudzinski, Kim Mack, Nicole Kutz Menard, Amy Pollesch and Josh Rieder, and incumbent Sherry Muskavitch.

Incumbents Barb Schultz and Tom Stellmacher were unavailable to attend.

The event was hosted by the League of Women Voters of Ripon and held in the City Council chambers.

About 50 people heard the remarks in person, while others had the opportunity to tune in live via the Ripon Channel.

Each candidate had seven minutes to respond to questions they received prior to the event and briefly answered questions from the audience.
