Jacob Malinowski First to Officially Qualify for Ballot in 82nd District

Despite COVID-19, Wisconsin’s Youngest Democratic Challenger Approved Before GOP Incumbent

GREENDALE, WISCONSIN —  On May 18th, the Wisconsin Elections Commission officially certified enough nomination paper signatures for Jacob Malinowski to be placed on the August 11th and November 3rd ballots. Jacob was the first candidate in the 82nd district to qualify.

“I am so motivated by the grassroots support we received during the nominating process. Thank you to everyone who signed our papers — because of you, voters will have a real choice in November,” said Jacob

While candidates across the state struggled to collect nomination paper signatures, Jacob’s campaign was thinking outside the box. Jacob took this process online with the goal of meeting people wherever they were at. Within 48 hours of launching his campaign, he had enough commitments to make the ballot.

“I think this process has demonstrated exactly why we need a fresh face representing the 82nd district. COVID-19 is a modern challenge that I never anticipated facing when I first decided to run for State Assembly, but we adapted, followed the science, and found creative ways to achieve success,” Jacob said.

Jacob’s campaign collected signatures in every safe way imaginable: through the mail, delivery and pick-up, and even on his doorstep.

“Meanwhile, my Republican opponent refuses to listen to health experts and is sticking to the old way of doing things: in person and without a mask. Wisconsin has some difficult challenges and incredible opportunities on the horizon, and this same old way of thinking just won’t cut it,” he continued.

Jacob is a lifelong resident of the 82nd district, and he’s running on a bipartisan people-first roadmap that includes expanding the Wisconsin G.I. Bill, staffing every school district with a mental health counselor, and reducing the gas tax — in direct opposition with the budget proposal made by Democrats in 2018. Jacob is running because the residents of Franklin, Greendale, and Greenfield are fed up with partisan politics as usual and are looking for a passionate, accessible, and inclusive leader who is actually going to get things done.
