Democrat Wiejaczka opposes ‘divisive’ politics
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.
