With the election for mayor of the City of Madison approaching, the Wisconsin Policy Forum and Downtown Madison Inc. will host a general election debate exploring the city’s challenges and opportunities. Join us to hear the candidates discuss the issues facing downtown and the rest of the city that have been highlighted in Forum research:

  • Madison’s finances, including the limits placed on state aid and other city revenues and the city’s growing debt
  • Addressing affordable housing for a growing population
  • Implementing Bus Rapid Transit while coping with the challenges facing Madison Metro
  • Strategies to ensure public safety, from the right staffing and role of the police to investment in violence prevention
  • Promoting sustainable economic development in the city

All three of the current candidates have agreed to participate should they emerge from the primary. The debate is free and open to the public, who simply need to register below.
