GENEVA – Geneva resident Martha Paschke will announce her intention to run as a Democrat for the Illinois 65th Representative District at 4 p.m. Oct. 27 at Deane’s Market L& Deli, 500 S. Third St., Geneva, according to a news release.

Paschke, a mental health worker, teacher and mother, has been focused on serving the community by helping the mentally vulnerable receive the critical care they need while also fighting for the interests of students and their future, the release stated.

Paschke's mission in public service is to improve the livelihoods of everyday Illinoisans by pursuing efforts to drive economic growth, fighting for those with pre-existing conditions and advancing access to affordable health care, the release stated.

Incumbent Dan Ugaste, R-Geneva, currently holds the seat in the 65th District seat, having won it in 2018.

Unless there is a primary, Paschke would challenge Ugaste for the seat.

The district includes portions of Huntley, Hampshire, Pingree Grove, Elgin, South Elgin, St. Charles, Geneva and Batavia.
