Congratulations to Patty Schachtner, winner of the Democratic primary election for the 10th Senate District! And much thanks to the other two Democratic candidates, John Rocco Calabrese and Reuben Herfindahl, who also put their lives on hold to run for this seat.

Next step: the January 16, 2018 special election. We all have work to do — writing letters to the editor, phone banking, canvassing, donating, putting out yarn signs, and most important of all, talking to our friends and family about Patty. You can sign up at Patty’s website or contact one of our co-chairs to volunteer. This is a winnable seat; let’s all get out there and make sure it that happens!
