The League of Women Voters (LWV) of the Ripon Area and the LWV of Winnebago County will team up to host a U.S. House of Representatives District 6 Candidate Forum Thursday at 7 p.m.

The forum will take place in the Council Chamber of Ripon City Hall, 100 Jackson St.

Each of the two candidates, Tom Petri, R-Fond du Lac, and Joe Kallas, D-Princeton, will have a few minutes for self-introduction.

Then each of the candidates has an opportunity to present two questions of their opponent with opportunity for rebuttal.

Following this segment, the candidates will be asked identical questions by a LWV moderator.

Audience members can submit questions in writing through the moderator.

The forum concludes with a statement from each candidate.

The LWV has invited the candidates to remain after the forum to chat with those in attendance.

The Ripon Channel will broadcast this event live on Charter cable channel 97 and through Charter’s digital feed on channel 986.

For information about broadcast copies, call the Ripon Channel at 748-4917.
