Candidates for Vernon County judge to take part in forum March 23

The two candidates for Vernon County Circuit Court Judge, Tim Gaskell and Darcy Rood, will answer audience questions in a candidate forum from 7–8 p.m. Thursday, March 23, at the Viroqua Elementary School Cafetorium, 115 Education Ave., Viroqua.

Gaskell serves as the Vernon County District Attorney. Rood is Vernon County’s corporation counsel and is an attorney in private practice. Either Gaskell or Rood will replace Judge Michael Rosborough, who will retire from the bench after the general election Tuesday, April 4.

The Vernon Women’s Alliance will sponsor the forum, which will be free and open to the public. Questions can be submitted in writing at the forum or in advance at facebook.com/VWAlliance. Questions will be vetted by Vernon Women’s Alliance members and directed to both candidates.

The Vernon Women’s Alliance is a nonpartisan organization with a history of sponsoring candidate forums. Its most recent forum, in late October 2016, attracted more than 80 community members to hear incumbent State Sen. Jennifer Shilling debate challengers Dan Kapanke and Chip DeNure.
