WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Local elections are next month, but some people are hoping Marathon County residents will get to know their candidates better.
The Taxpayers League of Central Wisconsin invited candidates running for city council, county board and the Wausau and DC Everest school boards to speak at the VFW in Wausau earlier this evening.
The forum was designed to help voters before election day.
League President Grace Berg says, "People are not getting chance to meet these people and to know what they stand for or what they don't stand for."
More than 20 candidates came to speak at this event.
The League says many of brand new to politics.
Local elections are on April 6th.
