Retiring Wisconsin state Assemblywoman Tamara Grigsby and Milwaukee County Supervisor Nikiya Harris were among 10 city, county and state lawmakers who are endorsing Sandy Pasch for the new 10th Assembly District.
Throughout her past two terms in representing the greater Milwaukee area, and as Assistant Assembly Democratic Leader and chair of the Milwaukee Democratic Legislative Caucus, Rep. Pasch has demonstrated that she is a passionate and steadfast champion for Milwaukee’s families in the State Assembly,” said Rep. Grigsby in her endorsement announcement last week.
“She is a proven leader and advocate for the issues affecting Milwaukee’s communities, and I am excited to endorse her candidacy for re-election in the new 10th Assembly District.”
The other lawmakers are state Sen. Chris Larson, state Representatives Jon Richards, Christine Sinicki, JoCasta Zamarripa, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Supervisors Gerry Broderick, Theodore Lipscomb and Milwaukee Alderman Nik Kovac.
Pasch is one of several candidates running in predominately Black assembly districts. She is running in a restructured 10th Assembly District, the result of state-wide redistricting every 10 years after the U.S. Census is taken.
Pasch ran against and lost to state Sen. Alberta Darling in the 2011 recall election.
Rep. Pasch is a Milwaukee native, graduate of Milwaukee Public Schools, and resident of the area since 1986. She has been a practicing nurse since 1976 and has served for 15 years as Assistant Professor of Nursing at Columbia College of Nursing, instructing students in the fields of community health and mental health.
Rep. Pasch is the Assistant Assembly Democratic Leader and chair of the Milwaukee Democratic Legislative Caucus. During her two terms as a State Representative, she has focused on strengthening public education, improving health care, and creating family-sustaining jobs for Milwaukee’s communities.
