One of the new, young faces of the Democratic Party, Michael Beardsley, will be one of the featured speakers Thursday evening as a coalition of area county Dem groups sponsor a virtual candidate forum starting at 6 p.m. The coalition consists of Green Lake, Waushara, and Marquette Counties.
Beardsley, of Oshkosh, is one of three Dems on the Aug. 11 partisan primary ballot. Joining him on the ballot are Matt Boor and Jessica King. Boor and King have previously spoken to the Green Lake Dems & Friends so this is the first time Beardsley will have an opportunity to seek votes from the group.
Beardsley, Boor, and King did participate in a League of Women Voters of the Ripon Area candidate forum on July 1. You can view the tape of the forum here.
Email invites to the Thursday session with Beardsley were emailed earlier by Green Lake County Dems & Friends chair Linda Green. If you did not receive an invite and would like to participate, please contact Wilkens via email.
Both Boor and King have attended and spoken at prior meetings of the Green Lake County Dems organization.
