Acccording to the Wisconsin Elections Commission, Sargent was the first fall candidate to complete the signature gathering process.
“Despite the snow, ice, and wind, neighbors and friends came to assist in gathering nomination signatures,” said Sargent. “I am honored to have amazing supporters. The past few days were a wonderful reminder of what makes our community such a special place. I have had great conversations on the north and east sides of Madison and I look forward to continue gathering nomination signatures from every corner of the 48th Assembly District.”
“I know that when we work together we can build a Wisconsin that works for all of us,” added Sargent.
