MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke will be the featured guest for an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Tuesday, March 25, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. at Marquette Law School’s Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

Burke, a Democrat, is expected to face Republican incumbent Gov. Scott Walker in the November election. She is a former executive at her family’s company, Trek Bicycle, a former state commerce secretary and a current member of the Madison, Wis. school board. Burke will discuss her views on a variety of issues, including job creation, taxes and education.

Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is a Distinguished Fellow in Law and Public Policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.

Please note that seating for the event is at capacity, although members of the community are invited to register for the waiting list online. For those who can’t attend in person, all “On the Issues” events are streamed live online at the following website, which also contains a catalog of past guests.
