Responses to League Generated Questions: WI Assembly District 23
In the interest of informing voters, the League of Women Voters of Ozaukee County reached out to candidates on the November 3rd ballot in contested races that affected Ozaukee County voters. In an email and follow-up mailing, State and US Congress candidates were invited to respond to League member-generated questions. Campaign email addresses and mailing addresses were obtained from Campaign Registration Statements for State candidates and from campaign websites for US Congress candidates. Candidate responses could either be in writing with a 300-word limit per question or in a virtual video/audio response with a 2-minute time limit per question, using the League’s Zoom platform. Either the written response or the recorded video/audio response is posted here verbatim and unedited. Lack of response from a candidate is also noted. Responses are posted in ballot order and as they are received. Deb Andraca recorded an audio response (see below) on September 22, 2020 and no response, written or recorded, has been received from Jim Ott as of this posting on September 27, 2020.
