New concept: a legislator elected from among his constituents
Without endorsing a candidate in the 44th Assembly District, it’s nice to see a candidate that actually lives among the people he would like to represent in Madison. Bill Truman, a member of the Janesville City Council, actually lives in the district. The incumbent, Assembly Speaker Mike Sheridan, is living in an apartment outside his district as a result of his *ahem* family issues. Two Republican candidates live outside the district, and a third moved to the district from Rockford, IL.
Collecting nomination signatures must be a real pain for those candidates.
