Incumbent municipal court judge, disability-rights advocate to face off at forum

The two candidates for a Milwaukee municipal judge seat will be facing off Monday at a forum organized by the Milwaukee Bar Association.

Incumbent Milwaukee Municipal Court Judge Valarie Hill and William Crowley of Disability Rights Wisconsin will be attending a forum from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, at the Milwaukee Bar Association, 424 East Wells St.

The forum will be moderated by Dan O’Donnell, anchor, commentator and talk show host for iHeartMedia.

The candidates will answer questions from those in attendance.

Hill fended off three challengers in last month’s primary, taking 47 percent of the vote, or 13,084 votes. Crowley beat out two other candidates, Assistant City Attorney Kail Decker and Legal Aid Society of Milwaukee Staff Attorney Brian Michel, getting 19.2 percent of the vote, or 5,356 votes.

Voters will head to the polls on April 4 to pick a candidate.
