Next spring, there will be a statewide election for a new Wisconsin Supreme Court justice. The decisions that this court makes affect every citizen of our state, so it is important for all voters to be fully informed about how the Wisconsin court system functions. 

The Leagues of Appleton Fox-Cities and Winnebago County have teamed up to present a two-part program detailing the seriousness of the issue.

Part 1 was Monday, November 21 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in room 1338 at the UWO-Fox Cities Campus (1478  Midway Road, Menasha.)

Part 2 will be on Monday, December 5 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Winnebago County Coughlin Center, 625 E. County Road Y in Oshkosh. Former Judge and attorney Joseph Troy will provide his perspective on what is undermining Wisconsin Courts such as campaign finance and recusal rules. Email invitation will be sent later.
