State Rep Candidate Has Hip Surgery

An injured hip doesn’t sideline a candidate for a local state House seat.

However, it’s going to halt her pace a bit.

Judy Nerat is running for the state 108th District House seat that Tom Casperson is leaving because of term limits.

She’s just had emergency surgery to repair a fractured hip.

Nerat had been campaigning with the injured hip for several weeks until doctors insisted on immediate surgery.

Nerat is expected to fully recover.

She says she’s still going to be out campaigning.
