Election Tuesday, F-35A Community Meeting

February 19, 2018 2:47 PM


Election - Tuesday, February 20

There is a state-wide primary election on the Spring ballot. More specifically, there is a primary for the Wisconsin Supreme Court - which all voters are eligible for vote in. Residents in District 12 do not have a local election on the ballot.

For more information about all candidates please review the League of Women Voters Candidate's Answers.

A reminder that for residents in Ward 31 and 32 your polling places have changed. You should have received a post card from the city with your new polling location:

  • Ward 31 (Brentwood and Sheridan Triangle) moves from St Paul Lutheran to Lakeview Library, 2845 N Sherman Avenue.
  • Ward 32 (Sherman) from Packers Avenue Townhomes to Goodwill, Madison Northside, 2901 N Sherman Avenue.

Also, there continues to be a requirement to show your valid identification. 

F-35A Community Meeting

North/Eastside Alders are hosting an F-35A Listening Session.

  • Wednesday, February 28, 7-8:30p
  • East Madison Community Center 8 Straubel Court

Alders Rummel, Kemble, Baldeh, Ahrens, DeMarb and I invite you to a listening session about the proposed use of Truax Field as a site for eighteen next-generation F-35A jets. You will be invited to share questions, comments, and concerns both in a community-meeting style format and in written form which will be reviewed by alders and city staff. 

Unfortunately, this meeting will conflict with the previously scheduled North District Police Chief Community Listening session that I had previously informed you about. 

In addition, please remember the National Guard will also be planning a Public Scoping meeting on March 8 either 2-4pm and 5-8pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at 4402 E Washington Avenue. They are specifically gathering public input for the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the F-35A bed down.  

You can also send written comments to Ms. Christel Johnson, NGB/A4AM, Sheppard Hall, 3501 Fetchet Avenue, Joint Base Andrews MD 20762-5157 or via the project website.
