WMC Lauds Kapenga for His Strong Free Market Leadership
WAUKESHA – In recognition of his strong leadership role in passing historic Right to Work legislation, State Representative Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) today won the WMC “Free Market Leadership Award” at a Waukesha manufacturing company.
“Representative Kapenga is a free-market visionary who knows that prosperity happens when businesses and families are freed from high taxes and big government,” said Scott Manley, WMC Vice President of Government Relations. WMC, Wisconsin’s chamber of commerce, is the state’s leading business association and advocate for Right to Work legislation.
In the Wisconsin Assembly, Kapenga was a tireless advocate for passage of Wisconsin’s historic Right to Work legislation. Gov. Scott Walker signed Right to Work into law in March. Kapenga is a leading advocate for manufacturing job creation and has repeatedly earned the WMC Working for Wisconsin Award for his support of pro-growth policies.
Kapenga received the WMC “Free Market Leadership Award” at H.O. Bostrom, 818 Progressive Ave., Waukesha. Bostrom is a manufacturer of high-quality seating for trucks and other vehicles.
“Chris Kapenga is one of the strongest advocates for job creation and limited government in the Wisconsin Legislature, and he deserves the highest praise and recognition,” Manley said. “When it comes to job creation, Chris Kapenga is a tireless advocate for Waukesha area jobs and families.”
Kapenga was first elected to the Assembly in 2010. He is the owner and president of a technology company with offices in Wisconsin and other states. He is a certified public accountant.
