DRESSER, Wis. -- At a campaign kick-off event on Thursday night, Gae Magnafici, the Republican candidate for the State 28th Assembly District, kicked off her campaign to a standing room only crowd.
Guests joining Gae Magnafici at her event included current State Representative, Adam Jarchow, and former State Representative, Erik Severson, who have both publicly endorsed her candidacy. Gae also introduced Sgt. Brent Waak, the Republican candidate for Polk County Sheriff, and Joanne Ritten, the interim Polk County Clerk of Courts. In addition, Gae had an opportunity to meet more than 70 guests who came out to hear her speak and help her raise campaign funds.
Gae is originally from the Amery area. She grew up on a small farm near Deronda, WI.
