Patton in search of paid interns for campaign
Hal Patton is seeking paid campaign interns for his run for the 56th Senate District seat.
Patton recently took to Facebook to post an advertisement declaring interns can “make your own hours” and “make a difference in the region.”
Qualifications are outlined as “eligible to vote in the November election, excellent verbal communication skills and can-do mentality.”
In another Facebook post, the Edwardsville mayor sought volunteers to “host events, serve as social media ambassadors and help spread the word.”
Patton is set to face off against Rachelle Aud Crowe (D-Glen Carbon) in November’s general election. He launched his third-party run after a challenge to his GOP candidacy resulted in him being kicked off the ballot for having once signed a petition for Stuart. Illinois law stipulates that a candidate cannot sign petitions for different parties.
The 56th Senate District includes all or parts of Edwardsville, Alton, Glen Carbon, Bethalto, Caseyville, Collinsville, East Alton, Elsah, Fairview Heights, Hartford, Godfrey, Granite City, Madison, Maryville, O’Fallon, Pontoon Beach, Roxana, Shiloh, South Roxana, Swansea and Wood River.
