Donate to our local news fund, help a nonprofit

We’re on a mission in 2022 to work on a year-long series about housing in Racine County and we need your help to fund it. For every $250 in donations that we receive, we’ll give a nonprofit one free month in advertising.

Residents living in the 66th Assembly District will head to the polls Tuesday to vote in a primary election between Greta Neubaur and John Tate II.

Both candidates are running as Democrats in the primary election. The person with the most votes will then be the only candidate on the ballot for the primary election, which will be held Jan. 16. The seat was left vacant after Cory Mason was elected in October.

Tate, who has held his position as Alderman for about six months, works as a social worker for the Department of Children and Family Services in Kenosha County. He is the second candidate running as a Democrat to announce his bid for the seat, which prompted a primary election.

Neubauer’s family isn’t a stranger to politics. She is the daughter of Jeff Neubauer, who represented the 62nd Assembly District for several terms from 1981 to 1988. Greta graduated from Middlebury College in 2015 with a Bachelor’s Degree in history. She also served as a legislative aide to Mason.
