Everyone needs to exercise their voting rights this Tuesday, Jan. 16 if you live in the 10th State Senate District of Wisconsin. Sheila Harsdorf resigned recently and three candidates are vying for that position.
Menomonie and west to the St. Croix River are part of the district. The three candidates are: Patty Schachtner, Democrat; Brian Corriea, Libertarian; and Adam Jarchow, Republican.
On Jan. 10, three of us from Menomonie attended the candidates forum in New Richmond sponsored by the VFW. It was informative and helpful in understanding the different approaches these candidates would take in being our state senator.
If you want to learn more about their positions, listen to the interview on Wisconsin Public Radio by going to the Facebook page of LWV-GCV (League of Women Voter-Greater Chippewa Valley). Then vote!
