May 9, 2022 – Today, the Wisconsin Builders Association (WBA) announced their endorsement of Rebecca Kleefisch in her campaign for Governor.
“Rebecca has long been an advocate for the homebuilding and construction industries,” said Cory Sillars, WBA President. “We worked closely with her during her time as Lt. Governor and have continued to receive her support since then. We are proud to support her and know she will continue to advance Wisconsin as its next Governor.”
As the 44th Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin, Rebecca championed workforce and economic development. She created the Governor’s Small Business Summit, an event that allowed small business owners to access state leaders, the Small Business Academy, a free seminar designed for minority and female entrepreneurs. Additionally, she has traveled the state as a Jobs Ambassador, encouraging Wisconsin workers to choose well-paying jobs in the construction trades.
“I’m honored to have the backing of the Wisconsin Builders Association for my campaign for governor,” said Kleefisch. “Worker shortages, unaffordable materials, and bureaucratic permit logjams are adding massive costs to building Wisconsin. I have the experience to get to work solving those problems on Day One. Those who build Wisconsin know I’ll get us back on track through transformational tax reform, fewer regulations, and strengthening vocational training, and I thank them for their support.”
