2006 Primary Recap

The 2006 Indiana primary elections are now over, and I am happy to report that I prevailed in my own contest with 92% of the vote.

The South Bend Tribune writes:

Receiving an overwhelming majority of the vote, Ryan Dvorak said he was pleased with his results in Tuesday’s primary election.

“I thought we’d leave it up to the voters,” he said. “I think if you communicate with the voters in your district, they will make the right decisions.”

He handily won the Democratic nomination to retain his seat as District 8 state representative…

The Tribune also published the picture below of me and County Council president Rafael Morton chatting at the West Side Democratic Club after the polls had closed.

2006 Primary election is tomorrow

Tuesday is Primary Election day. Don’t forget to get out and vote!

The South Bend Tribune ran a story yesterday about my own primary contest this year:

Two familiar names are seeking the Democratic nomination for House District 8, which includes urban, suburban and rural parts of St. Joseph County.

Incumbent Rep. Ryan Dvorak, of South Bend, is seeking his third term in office. He’s running on his record, which he describes as “stand(ing) up for my community” on property taxes, education and constituent concerns…

The Tribune also published the candidate surveys we are asked to complete here. The survey responses are limited to 50 words, but it is still nice the paper publishes them for the public.

More coverage of local races can be found at the Tribune’s “Vote 2006” section.
