Sandy Pasch represented the 22nd Assembly District for two terms.  She is among four candidates running in the 10th Assembly District.

The Republican Candidates
Don Pridemore.  As with Sandy Pasch in the 10th Assembly District, Pridemore is the de facto incumbent in this race.  He has served as the representative in the 99th Assembly District [2002 map] since 2004.

Born Milwaukee, October 20, 1946; married; 3 sons. 

Graduate Milwaukee Lutheran H.S. 1964; B.S.E.E. Marquette U. 1977. 

Full-time legislator. Former electronics research technician, electronics design engineer, senior electronics project engineer, and amateur ABATE chili judge. 

Vietnam Era veteran; served in U.S. Air Force 1965-69. 

Member: Hartford Lions; Hartford Area Taxpayers Assn.

Democrat thrown off ballot in suburban Assembly race. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 6/8/2012)  Republicans will get a free shot at an Assembly seat in suburban Milwaukee in November after state election officials determined Friday a Democrat didn't have enough valid signatures to get on the ballot. 

The state Government Accountability Board ruled just 187 of the signatures Democrat Chad Bucholtz submitted were valid, 13 short of the 200 needed. 

That means the seat in the 22nd Assembly District will almost certainly go to the winner of the Aug. 14 Republican primary. In that race are Rep. Don Pridemore (R-Hartford) and Nick Oliver of Colgate, who owns an information technology business. 

 Republicans in the Legislature last year drew new boundaries for legislative districts, and the new 22nd District includes Erin, Lisbon, Lannon, Butler, parts of Richfield, parts of Menomonee Falls and a sliver of Milwaukee.
