Some news from the 20th Assembly district

Some interesting tidbits of information coming out of the 20th Assembly district, where a gaggle of Republicans are vying to unseat incumbent Democratic State Rep. Chris Sinicki.

  • It looks like two-time candidate (and loser) Molly McGartland is back for another (likely futile) attempt at unseating Rep. Sinicki. While she hasn’t officially registered as a candidate as of today, McGartland held a campaign kickoff event over the weekend and she’s already started trashing Rep. Sinicki on Facebook.
  • According to multiple sources, Mike Pierce, one of the other Republicans vying to unseat Rep. Sinicki, spent at least a part of his Memorial Day knocking on doors in support of his campaign to unseat Rep. Sinicki. Now perhaps I’m making a mountain out of a molehill, but it bothers me that a candidate for office would spend Memorial Day politicking, and it bothers me even more considering Mike Pierce is himself a military veteran. I attempted to reach Pierce for a comment on his Memorial Day campaigning, but I didn’t get a response.

  1. I got a piece of literature on my front door at my property near Humboldt Park sometime in Sunday.

    But I won’t fault him for campaigning on Saturday or Sunday…he wasn’t the only candidate out on doors those two days…and I don’t see why they shouldn’t be able to. Monday is different. I don’t have the lit with me but I don’t recall if it actually said Republican on it…conservative yes…and a promise go increase jobs, better schools and lower taxes…all clearly all of the GOP memes.

    1. Yeah, I don’t have any problem with him hitting doors over the weekend, nor would I have a problem with it on an ordinary Monday, but it wasn’t an ordinary Monday.

  2. I live in the far south end of Cudahy. Mike Pierce was out doing doors in our neighborhood on the Sunday afternoon before Memorial Day. Looked to be a pretty organized guy; he must have purchased frequent voter lists as he made sure to visit me, but then skipped a number of neighboring houses where the residents rarely vote. His campaign lit piece prominently displayed that he is an Eagle Scout (just like Governor Walker). Once he identified himself as a Republican running against Chris Sinicki, I told him to keep his campaign literature, that after Act 10 I would never vote for a Republican again. He politely left my yard.

  3. Zach, at least you guys in the 20th have Chris Sinicki. Are those of us stuck in the 21st District fated to be without a candidate?
