Twenty-four past and current Dane County Supervisors are endorsing Melissa Ratcliff in the contested primary for State Assembly, District 46. They join a growing list of more than 55 endorsers including Dane County Executive Joe Parisi, Dane County Treasurer Adam Gallagher, and former Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney.

The deadline for candidates to submit nomination papers to be on the ballot was June 1. The Ratcliff campaign gathered more than three times the number of signatures necessary and was the first campaign to submit its signatures. The primary election will be held on August 9.

“I have worked closely with Melissa Ratcliff on the Dane County Board. She is a respected progressive leader who gets things done,” said Supervisor Kate McGinnity from Cambridge. “From working together to co-found the first-ever Dane County Broadband Task Force, to her focus on services for seniors, I’ve seen firsthand her tireless work ethic and dedication to delivering for her constituents. She is the best choice for State Assembly, and I am strongly supporting her.”

“I am very honored to have the support of colleagues who know my work best and who know what it takes to effectively represent the people of your district,” Ratcliff said. “The Supervisors endorsing me come from a variety of backgrounds and areas in the County. While we may have different perspectives, their support shows my ability to work collaboratively to find common ground and solve tough problems.”
