Associated Builders and Contractors MN/ND has endorsed Representative Donald Raleigh
EDEN PRAIRIE, MN – The Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Minnesota and North Dakota is pleased to announce its first round of 2022 congressional and state candidate endorsements. ABC endorses lawmakers and candidates who champion free market principles and who defend the merit shop philosophy in the construction industry. This philosophy encourages competition and a free-enterprise approach to construction solely on merit, regardless of labor affiliation.
Rep. Raleigh stated, “My family, through my wife Marnie, has been in the construction trades for six generations. Working with the trades is always a highlight for me.”
“I am working to promote our young people to look at the construction trades as a great career choice” continued Raleigh, “through initiatives like Build Your Future we are collaborating on a grassroots approach to construction workforce forecasting and development that includes recruitment, training, placement, and retention that offers a direct path for our future workers. College is a great choice for some students, but so are the trades for others. As I have heard from my friends at ABC, building the people that build America is the right thing to do.”
ABC of Minnesota and North Dakota represents more than 325 companies who employ over 22,000 employees in the commercial and industrial construction industry. ABC of Minnesota and North Dakota is the leading voice promoting free enterprise within
the construction industry. More information about MN/ND ABC is available online at www.mnabc.com.
