Madison Spring Election Guide 2023

by Safety Connection

Do you believe that everyone who lives in our city has a right to feel safe and that their leaders are listening to them? It’s election time in Madison, and your vote is crucial!

City leadership will be deciding the direction that Madison will take on important issues like public safety, housing, zoning, transit and more. Plus, alders and the Mayor will be confronting a serious structural deficit, and cuts to city services you enjoy will no-doubt be on the table over the next couple of years.

We’ve compiled information for you on all of the candidates in the contested Common Council races plus the Mayoral race.

Because we are safety group, we focused on the candidates’ public safety platforms and records. But we’ve also included plenty of links with much more candidate information so you can learn about where they stand on all the important issues that affect your daily life in Madison.

Note: Until election day, we will continue to update the candidate pages with any links and additional information that becomes available.
