On Tuesday, May 7, there will be a special primary election for the 17th District seat on the Dane County Board of Supervisors. For today’s show, we interview the three candidates: David Ahrens, Kristen Audet, and Amanda McKaig. They highlight many of the important issues facing the county such as mental health, jailing, the opioid crisis, county-wide transportation issues, collaboration with the city government, and environmental issues like flooding and drinking water.
