Congrats to Sandy Pasch
By Keith R. Schmitz
Open seats always make for interesting elections, and in the 22nd we sure had that. We weren't lacking for attention this summer. Four people campaigning hard to take over the Assembly seat from Sheldon Wasserman who hopes to move up in the State Senate.
Very much neck and neck last night between candidates Sandy Pasch and Andy Feldman in the Milwaukee northshore as returns came in between 9:00 and 11:00. In the end Sandy squeaked by. She will go on to face the Republican in November.
Sandy will bring her great experience in health care to Madison, particularly in the area of mental health. No doubt she will do a good job representing us.
Tough loss for Andy, but he has a packed resume and will be a fine addition to our local politics.
