“I ran for the Assembly in 2010 believing that government works best when it works for the people, and not the people working for the government, and that belief has only been affirmed during my four years in office.”

Senator Paul Farrow due to having been elected as Waukesha’s next County Executive.  The primary and general election dates are expected to be this summer and will be called by Gov. Scott Walker upon Sen./County Executive-elect Farrow’s resignation.

Wisconsin is headed in the right direction, and I am proud to have played a key role in advancing Right to Work that is further improving Wisconsin’s economic competitiveness.  The Senate will need an experienced leader to fill the vacancy of Senator Farrow.

I am confident I can be that leader if the voters will trust me with that honor,”said Kapenga, who has shown leadership by voting for Act 10 to being the lead Assembly author on Right to Work.

 

 

KAPENGA DEBATES RIGHT-TO-WORK ON UPFRONT

GOP Rep. Chris Kapenga said he’s spearheading legislative efforts to introduce a “right-to-work” bill in the upcoming legislative session because not having a choice whether to be in a union is “just fundamentally against what I stand for.”

According to Kapenga, the bill would limit hourly wage municipalities could pay with state tax dollars. He said he believes higher mandated wages are counter-productive.

“We want the policies that will grow jobs,” Kapenga said. “This inflated wage type policy… actually has proven to reduce the overall number of jobs.”
