Candidate for District 4 will use her nursing and disease study experience to help fight pandemic


LOGAN – Tuesday was National Voter Registration Day and on KVNU’s For the People program on Tuesday, legislative candidate for House District 4, Mary DaSilva was our guest. She talked about her experience in health care.

“I was born and raised in Logan, I was actually raised in River Heights and I went to the county schools and Utah State (University) and Weber State and so on. I’m a registered nurse, and as a coincidence with this pandemic that came on, I worked in my whole career in public health.

“After graduation from Utah State and Weber State, my husband and I moved down to Texas, where I was employed in a large health department down there,” DaSilva explained.

She said for 17 years of her career in Texas she did disease surveillance. DaSilva said her experience down there has taught her a lot about epidemiology and what to do to help combat diseases.

“And I worked very directly with a whole bunch of contagious diseases. The pandemic wasn’t really in full force when I filed for office. As this has unrolled I am very interested to get up there to the legislature to help them make better choices with our public health dollars.”

      You’re right, she has 3 strikes: female, non-(R), and half a brain. I read her site for 30 seconds and derived that she’s likely volunteered far more of her time to good causes than any of us armchair warriors flinging shit at each other here.

      But hey, glad to see you’re pulling out all the stops with those 2nd grader style insults, dickring mcgee.

        Do you wear the mask so no one can see the skeet dripping from your lips? I never said anything about her gender, political party or her intelligence. I’m wondering why you do. Most intelligent people don’t participate in identity politics, but you obviously did. Besides, being a democrat and having half a brain go hand in hand. It doesn’t matter if you’re male or female.

          Ooh I’m impressed you even know the meaning of this word. But, I am sorry, I am the one who skeets all over the faces on here. You didn’t have to say anything because your party takes care of your bigotry for you. Congratulations, you’ve been played by your own.
