Mark your calendar for Tuesday, April 3rd, when Tosa voters will go to the polls to elect alders in every district. County Grounds Coalition endorsements are below. Remember: there's no better way to get the city to listen to us than to elect alders who agree with us.

TOSA EAST TOWNE NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION FORUM: TETNA is hosting a forum with the two District 5 candidates for Common Council, Heather Kuhl and Brent Nistler, from 7 to 9 p.m. March 21 in the Multipurpose Room of Roosevelt Elementary School.

Update on the LSD MASTER PLAN: The Community Affairs Committee will meet at 7:30 p.m.

The County Grounds Coalition sent out a questionnaire to all the candidates running for Aldermanic Seats. We were joined by other organizations who are also interested in knowing more about these candidates and where the incumbents stand on the various issues.

You can read each of the alder candidates' responses to our joint questionnaire. See tabs.
County Grounds Coalition's endorsements based on interviews and the questionnaire;
District 1: MARY LOCKWOOD
Mary is committed to preserving all the remaining natural areas of the County Grounds' Northeast Quadrant.
District 2: BARB SCHOENHERR
Long active with the Coalition and in the community, she's taken on the developers and their political allies.
District 5: HEATHER KUHL
Heather opposes "development and any road construction on the County Grounds’ northeast quadrant" while her opponent, newcomer Brent Nistler, refuses to commit to preserving it, saying alders should "look at what proposal is in front of them at the time it is proposed." The Coalition wants to take those remaining natural areas off the table for development "in perpetuity."
Please note that we won't be endorsing anyone in District 7 (Kofroth v. Morgan).
District 6 incumbent Allison Byrne’s questionnaire responses are also included here.
