Today, Kim Delorit Jensen, Democratic Party candidate for the State Assembly in District #1, presented her nomination petitions containing 398 signatures to the State Election Commission. The count well exceeded the 200 needed for Jensen to appear on the November 3rd ballot. 400 signatures is the maximum number a candidate can submit.
With the help over 120 volunteers Jensen turned in signatures from every corner of the First Assembly District which includes all of Door and Kewaunee counties, Eastern Brown County and a section of Manitowoc County North of Two Creeks. Jensen noted that the Nomination Petition process is helpful for candidates to meet voters face-to-face “the current covid virus presented somewhat of a challenge but we were met with great enthusiasm at all of our drive up events.”
During more than a hundred conversations, Jensen found “people are glad to have a qualified challenger in the district. People were very motivated to come and sign. Many are very unhappy with the current behavior of the Republican legislature. They want commonsense, not nonsense, and I intend on giving them that kind of leadership.”
Petition signature events were limited to safe, socially distanced, pop-up events where people stayed in their cars or kept a safe distance. Campaign volunteers were in masks as signatures were collected and they sanitized pens and clipboards between uses.
Jensen is a native of Green Bay and resident of Door County. She owns five small businesses providing year round employment to more than 120 residents. Her top priorities as Assembly-person will be focusing on economic development in the entire district, providing reliable and cost effective internet for every household, a service she views “as essential as electric service and indoor plumbing” in today’s world, retention of our agricultural heritage and conservation of our natural resources.
