The Harmony Bar Stage and Alchemy Cafe Stage will feature blues, funk, rock, country, hip-hop, reggae, disco, and indie artists from Nashville, Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Boston, Sturgeon Bay, as well as some of the best Madison based artists. The KidsFest stage will feature acts that will appeal to both kids and adults alike.

Bridget Maniaci and Scott Resnick, both running against Madison's incumbent Mayor Paul Soglin

The Race For Mayor of Madison

Interview with two candidates for Madison Mayor 2015
by Rökker
January 2015

The primary election for the mayoral race in Madison is Tuesday, February 17, 2015. The pundits have been analyzing the candidates on everything from economic to evironmental policy beliefs and everything between, except music. It occurred to me that we always find out how supportive, or unsupportive, a mayor is for the music scene “after” being elected to office. There are two candidates that are young, bright, and bring a lot of energy and passion to the table. They are people that I have seen out at shows around town.Those two candidates are Bridget Maniaci and Scott Resnick. I thought it would be interesting to get their viewpoint on four simple questions.

Both Bridget and Scott have attended UW-Madison and served on the Madison Common Council. Bridget left office to complete a Masters of Science Public Policy & Public Management at Carnegie Mellon University while Scott has been Vice President of Hardin Design & Development as well as currently still serving on the city’s common council.

Resnick’s company, Hardin D&D, was named by Madison Magazine as one of the city’s best places to work and Bridget was named in Brava Magazine’s “Women to Watch” in 2014. You can get all the info on both candidates at their websites and
