Dr. Pat Bacon is running for state representative. Bacon, a Fairmont resident, is a Nurse Practitioner with a Doctorate in Nursing Practice, who some may remember from her time at the Smart Clinic in Fairmont. She taught nursing at Presentation College in Fairmont and graduate students at St. Catherine University in St. Paul. Hearing these stories from patients is what led her to run for MN House District 23A, which includes all of Martin County and portions of Jackson, Faribault, and Watonwan counties. Pat currently lives in Fairmont with her husband, Dan. She works at Madelia Community Hospital and Clinic, and has family all over southern Minnesota.
