The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread in Racine, Wisconsin hosts conversations bringing different perspectives and ideas together to build deeper understanding and bridges to new solutions on issues and topics that matter to our community. Our conversations with the 2017 Racine Mayoral candidates, Sandy Weidner and Cory Mason, allowed them to share their thoughts on a range of topics related to our community's resilience and give voters greater insight into their leadership approach on the issues and opportunities facing the City of Racine.
Our Resilient Communities Briefing Series was streamed live through our Facebook page and had over 7500 views - a far greater number than traditionally reached by candidate debate forums. That's why we're posting our podcasts - both in video and audio formats - so more people throughout the community can "see and hear" what the candidates have to say at a time and place that's more convenient for them. Our hope is these conversations not only reach more people, but also encourage them to vote in this election.
