Democrat Janis Ringhand and Republican Brian Fitzgerald will be on the ballot Tuesday fighting for the state Senate seat in the 15th District, which along with Rock County, also covers parts of Dane, Jefferson and Walworth counties.
As Tuesday?s election comes around the corner, Janis Ringhand was out knocking on doors Thursday.
Ringhand survived a three-way Democratic primary in August to get to this point, but it?s her experience in the State Assembly she hopes will help her cross the finish line.
?Knowing how to treat people and listening is really an important aspect of the job,? Ringhand said.
Her first goal, if elected, is to bring job growth to the area.
?Education is really key to bringing in the businesses that are willing to come here,? Ringhand said. ?We have a really strong work ethic. We just need to advance ourselves technologically to meet that challenge.?
