With the likely recall election for the 8th senate district just weeks away, Sandy Pasch this week challenged Senator Alberta Darling to participate in at least three candidate debates before voters go to polls this summer.
“This recall election provides an opportunity to honestly and fairly discuss the issues facing Wisconsin and the people of this district,” said Pasch. “By standing side-by-side and sharing our visions for Wisconsin, the people will see who will fight for education, health care and the middle class, and who is a politician giving millions of dollars in tax breaks to big corporations.”
This spring, 30,000 people signed petitions to recall Senator Darling after she supported an extreme agenda that threatens critical priorities, hurts the middle class and divides the state. By giving tax breaks to large corporations while cutting investments in schools, women’s healthcare and support for seniors, Darling isn’t asking for shared sacrifice to overcome the shared challenges facing Wisconsin families.
Sandy and her husband have lived in Whitefish Bay for 25 years, where they raised three children. A practicing nurse since 1976, and an assistant professor of nursing at Columbia College of Nursing for 15 years, Sandy taught students in the fields of mental health, community health, and ethics. A relative newcomer to the State Assembly, Sandy has focused on strengthening education, improving health care and creating jobs during her three years as a state representative.
