The North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters has endorsed Alder Lindsay Lemmer for Wisconsin State Assembly, District 48.
The North Center States Regional Council of Carpenters represents nearly 27,000 members and their families from 46 locals in Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. They operate a training center on Monument Lane in the 48th district.
“Alder Lemmer understands the role that well-trained and highly skilled union labor plays in Wisconsin’s economy and in its future,” said Andrew Disch, the Carpenters’ political director. “We are impressed by her commitment to working men and women and her understanding of the role strong Unions play in strengthening the future for everyone in Wisconsin.”
“The North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters and their locals here in Dane County are engaged and active in local and statewide issues,” Lemmer said. “I share their commitment to strengthening our economy and creating family-supporting jobs. I look forward to working with them as, together, we work our way back to economic health.”
Lemmer is also endorsed by Madison Teachers, Inc., AFSCME People, the Building Trades Council of South Central Wisconsin, Operating Engineers Local 139, AFT-Wisconsin, and Women Lead Wisconsin along with 30 current and former elected officials, more than any other candidate in the race. She has also earned the Gun Sense Candidate distinction from Moms Demand Action.
