“I was raised in Chicago’s inner city and attended both public and Catholic schools in Chicago, graduating from a city college. After 4 years in the U.S. Air Force, I worked for the U.S. Postal Service for 33 years, eventually becoming a Postmaster and a District mentor for aspiring and newly promoted supervisors. I know how difficult labor issues can be, having represented both sides of the table in Union negotiations. Before leaving the midwest, I also taught management classes at a local community college.”
Atchue will face off with incumbent LD 11 State Senator Steve Smith (R).
