In support of Schachtner
To the Editor,
I encourage everyone to vote for Patty Schachtner for State Senator in the December 19th primary. A few years back, I had the great fortune to watch Patty in action when she saw we needed a resource guide to help those struggling with addiction and mental health issues find access to care, and she brought community leaders together to get it done.
She reached out to our local hospital boards and clinics, made her case for the need for the guide, got commitments for funding the initiative, and had this multi-page, full color guide printed and mailed to every household in St. Croix County without using a single penny of taxpayer money. She accomplished this task within two months, from beginning to end. The resource guide was titled “We Are All In This Together,” and that’s exactly how Patty feels about everyone she meets -- and those she hasn’t yet met.
Patty has the right priorities and talent to be the voice of our communities. When she sees a need, she finds a way to bring people together to meet it. We need her working on our behalf in the state legislature. Please vote for Patty Schachtner on December 19th.
