Candidate for 32nd State Senate District focusing on healthcare

Jared Landry faces Jennifer Shilling in August Primaries

There’s another contender for Wisconsin’s 32nd state senate district seat.

Democrat Jared Landry is contesting the seat to make changes to Wisconsin’s education and natural resources. The 37-year-old La Farge resident faces Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling for the Senate seat.

Landry says his first focus in office would be ensuring everyone has affordable health care.

“If you’re only making $1300 a month and you have to pay $640 a month for health care, after gas and food, have you paid any of your bills? And if you’re single, does it work? No,” said Landry.

If Landry defeats Shilling in August he will go up against the winner of the Republican Primary, either Dan Kapanke or John Sarnowski.
