A former candidate for Legislative District 6 has thrown her hat into the mix for State Senate. Felicia French announced Tuesday she is running for State Senate for District 6, currently held by Sylvia Allen. French is running as a Democrat and is a former MedEvac helicopter pilot. She also served as a senior medical advisor in the Army in Afghanistan and served for 32 years. She says she will fight for “improving public education, affordable and accessible healthcare and protecting our drinking water from hydraulic fracking.” French came within 577 votes of winning a seat in the state House and hopes to win the Senate seat in 2020.
