In the period after graduating from college, Wilck worked for a Fortune 25 corporation that transferred him three times as he successfully progressed up in the company ladder.

Wilck has lived in six states and nine different towns and cities which has given him an excellent opportunity to see how things are done in other areas of the country.

“I have had the opportunity to see what has worked and what has not worked in other places and can apply those results to my decisions here,” Wilck wrote. “My opponent is running a very active write-in campaign, so please get out and vote.“ Early voting starts Sept. 17th.
