Three weeks ago Jeff Wright, Democratic candidate for the 51st Assembly District, and Todd Novak, the Republican candidate, met at a forum to talk about the critical issue of Public Education in Wisconsin.

It was a great opportunity to hear their different points of view. You can watch it at tinyurl.com/hy5pgm5.

In past elections, voters in the 51st District have had several opportunities to hear the opposing candidates. But not this year.

Since the first debate, three other community groups have asked both candidates to debate other topics. Jeff Wright has agreed to all of them, but Todd Novak has refused every one.

We are the people that one of these men will soon represent, and we deserve to know where they stand on the issues that are important to us. It is unfortunate that this video may be our only snapshot to see and hear these men in a room together. Please watch that video and make an informed decision.
