Tenth Senate District Election Preview on The West Side January 8

The three ballot candidates for the special election for Wisconsin’s 10th State Senate seat will be on The West Side Monday, January 8 at 10 a.m. on 88.3 WHWC-FM/ Menomonie-Eau Claire and 88.7 WRFW-FM/ River Falls.

Libertarian Brian Corriea of Wilson, Republican Adam Jarchow of Balsam Lake and Democrat Patty Schachtner of Somerset will join host Rich Kremer in the studio to debate important issues in the district and describe their candidacies. Schachtner and Jarchow won primary races December 19 to qualify for the election, while Corriea is the sole Libertarian to register for the special election.

Governor Scott Walker called the special election to replace long-time senator Sheila Harsdorf, after he appointed Harsdorf as secretary of the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. The Tenth District contains parts of St. Croix, Polk, Dunn, Pierce, and Burnett counties. The cities of Menomonie, Hudson, River Falls, New Richmond, Amery, St. Croix Falls, and Glenwood City are included in the district, as well as the villages of Baldwin, North Hudson, Somerset, Osceola, Hammond, Roberts, Grantsburg, Frederic, Luck, Boyceville and Balsam Lake.

The West Side is a call-in program focused on issues specific to western Wisconsin.  The show airs on Mondays at 10 a.m. on 88.3 WHWC-FM/ Menomonie-Eau Claire and 88.7 WRFW-FM/ River Falls, with a live stream at www.wrfw887.com.
