If you were not able to attend the Green Lake County Dems & Friends meeting on Jan. 4, you missed an extremely informative meeting featuring three candidates running for public office this year. 

But, fear not, the Ripon Commonwealth Press reported on the meeting in some detail. So, if you want to read about what candidates Judge Jill Karofsky and Joni Anderson had to say, check out the Jan. 9 issue of the paper. 

Karofsky, of course, is running for the Wisconsin Supreme Court seat now held by Daniel Kelly, who was appointed to the bench by former Republican Gov. Scott Walker. Anderson is seeking to unseat incumbent Republican State Senator Luther Olsen.

The award-winning Commonwealth Press had separate articles on Karofsky and Anderson on page 7. 

If you don’t subscribe to the newspaper, you can probably find a copy at your local newspaper outlet, or at your local library. Better yet, subscribe. It has been and continues to be a great source for information on local candidates, elections, and issues. An annual  subscription is only $40. Given the cost of other local newspapers, it is a bargain.
