The Building Trades Council of South Central Wisconsin (BTC) has endorsed Alder Lindsay Lemmer for State Assembly, District 48.
The BTC is comprised of 17 local building trades unions representing more than 6,000 building trades members who live and work in a seven county area. BTC members are skilled trade workers who are involved in all aspects of building and construction. The Council is affiliated with the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO.
“Alder Lemmer has the combination of skills, experience, and commonsense that we need in the State Legislature,” said Dave Branson, Executive Director of the BTC. “As a union member herself, she knows the importance of labor unions and she understands the work our members do. Her proven track record as a leader who gets things done impressed us and we’ll do everything we can to help elect her as the next State Representative from the 48th District.”
“It means a great deal to me to have earned the trust and confidence of the men and women in the BTC,” Lemmer said. “I appreciate the work the men and women in the trades do to help build communities, maintain our infrastructure, and the economic value their work creates and supports. I am honored by this endorsement.”
