Pro-Water Group Announces Candidate Forum in Central Wisconsin

Two pro-environmental citizens groups announced this weekend they are holding a state assembly candidate forum on October 6 at the Wisconsin Rapids Performing Arts Center.

The groups are trying to stop a massive, proposed CAFO bordering four counties in central Wisconsin.

Protect Wood County and Its Neighbors and Rome and Saratoga Friendly (Facebook) also say that tourism and recreation are threatened by the Concentrated Agricultural Feeding Operations (CAFOs) and non-point pollution runoff that befoul lakes, trout streams and drinking water aquifers.

The two candidates fielding questions are State Rep. Scott Krug (R-Nekoosa) and Dana Duncan (D-Port Edwards), nominee for the Democratic Party and a disability rights attorney.

The announcement reads:

72nd Assembly Debate - Scott Krug vs Dana Duncan
Monday October 6th from 6:30-8:30 PM
Wisconsin Rapids Performing Arts Center

After an incredible amount of work in a very short period of time, a small group of volunteers have come together and are dedicated to organizing this very important event. 

As we all know, who Wisconsinites decide to vote into office will affect the progress of our fight.  We need to decide who we feel will fight along side us to preserve our precious resources.

The Protect Wood County and Rome Saratoga Friendly groups are committed to supplying non-biased and non-partisan information to our followers in an attempt to allow you to make the best possible choice at the voting booths this coming November. 

Questions will be generated from constituents of the 72nd district and cover issues such as education, health care, tourism, the economy and much more.  To submit a question for consideration reply to this email, visit our website at , or mail your questions to P.O. Box 1532 Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54495

Attached is the flyer created to promote this event. We need your help in getting our announcement in workplaces and break-rooms all over the 72nd district.  No printer? No problem!  If you are willing to distribute flyers at your place of work or share them with community or church groups you attend, we will mail flyers to you.  This is a big undertaking and we need everyone's help getting the word out.

Mark Your calendars, you will not want to miss this debate!
