Special state House election to replace Jake Wheatley will be held April 5

Voters who have counted on Jake Wheatley as their state representative since 2003 will head to the polls on April 5 to decide his immediate replacement. Immediate, it will become, because the winner of the special election for the 19th District will only serve out the remainder of Mr. Wheatley’s term that ends in November.

District 19 News from Rep. Jake Wheatley: October 2021

This month, Rep. Wheatley discusses legislation to help minority-owned businesses by counteracting systemic barriers such as lack of access to finances. It’s no secret minority-owned businesses have faced an uphill battle from the beginning. Throw in the impacts of a global pandemic, and the odds are even more heavily stacked against their favor. With a drastic increase in COVID-19 cases fueled by the Delta variant, it is clear the pandemic is not over, and neither are the challenges so many of our local businesses continue to face.

District 19 News from Rep. Jake Wheatley: May 2021

Rep. Jake Wheatley: Violence is a learned behavior and we must start the collective process of unlearning it. Less than a year ago, I remember speaking with the family of young Zykier Young, who was shot and killed in his home, and expressing my condolences and reaffirming my commitment to making sure we do all that we can to reduce and eliminate senseless violence, especially gun violence that injures and kills our babies. Fast forward to today and just recently, more senseless violence has continued to destroy our Northside community, our city, and our country.
