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.

CARE-PAC Endorses Raleigh

CARE-PAC Endorses Raleigh

CARE-PAC, the political action committee for Care Providers of Minnesota, recently endorsed Donald W Raleigh for election to the Minnesota House in District 32B. Raleigh’s support of – and interest in – long-term care for the growing senior demographic was the primary reason he earned the CARE-PAC endorsement.

“Our dedicated long-term care professionals are proud to support Donald W Raleigh,” said Patti Cullen, President & CEO of Care Providers of Minnesota. “Raleigh understands our state’s long-term care issues, the need to expand our workforce, and the personal financing challenges facing seniors receiving long-term care services and supports. In addition, he has a deep commitment to maintaining Minnesota’s reputation for high-quality long-term care – wherever that care is provided.”

Cullen stated: “It is essential that our elected officials commit to funding the needs of our seniors so that providers can continue to provide the quality of care that our seniors deserve and expect. With 60,000 Minnesotans turning 65 every year for the next 15 years, it is critical that our elected officials prioritize funding for senior care in their work. Nursing facilities, assisted living settings, and home care providers struggle to hire experienced, quality caregivers in their settings – caregivers who are the cornerstone to providing quality care for Minnesota’s seniors. It is up to lawmakers to invest in these jobs and the caregiving profession for today’s seniors and the 25% of Minnesota adults who will be age 65 or older in the next decade.”

“We are excited to endorse Donald W Raleigh to continue supporting caregivers and quality care and to continue our partnership with elected officials into the future.”

Established in 1947, Care Providers of Minnesota is a nonprofit membership association with the mission to Lead members to Excellence. our 900+ members across Minnesota represent nonprofit and for-profit organizations providing services along the full spectrum of care.
