Democrat Wiejaczka opposes ‘divisive’ politics

September 28, 2018

Kathy Wiejaczka stresses one thing above all others in her campaign to be the next representative for the 101st State House District: politics and public service are not a game.

It’s a perspective that she says separates her from her opponent, Republican Jack O’Malley, as the two head into a face-off in the Nov. 6 general election.

She believes in making healthcare and education more accessible and affordable to people in the district, and she said a position in the legislature is more than just a prize to be won.

Hailing from Empire, Wiejaczka is a 35-year nurse, an educator and a small business owner. She said her years of experience working with people have been beneficial in her campaign, and helped her form connections with would-be constituents throughout the 101st.

“I’m not a politician, I’m a nurse,” Wiejaczka said. “People seem more receptive to the idea that they can trust me, and that I have their best interests at heart, and I will.”
