Madison mayoral candidates January 2019

Candidates for Madison mayor as of January 2019 are (clockwise from top left): Maurice Cheeks, Raj Shukla, Satya Rhodes-Conway, Toriana Pettaway, Nick Hart and Paul Soglin.

Six candidates are in the running to become Madison’s next mayor. 

Who will you vote for?

A great way to make a decision is to hear the candidates in a live, 90-minute forum organized and led by the Cap Times as part of our Cap Times Talks series at the Barrymore Theatre, 2090 Atwood Ave, on Wednesday, Jan. 9. We will cover a wide range of issues with the candidates from 7-8:30 p.m.

Come back to the Barrymore the following week, too, on Wednesday, Jan. 16 at 7 p.m. to hear a debate among the candidates about arts issues led by the Arts + Literature Laboratory and Tone Madison.

Both events are free and open to the public.

As of January, those who are still running for mayor are:

  • Maurice Cheeks
  • Nick Hart
  • Toriana Pettaway
  • Satya Rhodes-Conway
  • Raj Shukla
  • Paul Soglin

If you plan to come, please RSVP on our Facebook event page. It's not required for attendance, but it does help us promote the event and give us a sense of how many will be coming. Hope to see you there.
