WMC Recognized Gudex

Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC), the State’s Chamber of Commerce, recently honored State Senator Rick Gudex of Fond du Lac with the prestigious “Working for Wisconsin” Award at Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac.

The award is given to legislators who stand up for jobs and improve the state’s business climate by voting 80 percent or greater in support of the pro-jobs position on the WMC legislative scorecard. WMC reports that Senator Rick Gudex voted 100 percent to support job-creating legislation.

 “Senator Gudex was a true-leader for job creation and voted time and again to support pro-growth policies in the Legislature,” said Kurt R. Bauer, WMC President/CEO.

“In total, 69 award-winning lawmakers had 100 percent voting records on the WMC scorecard,” said Scott Manley, WMC vice president of government relations. WMC’s public policy team analyzes the key votes affecting industry to create the scorecard. The analysis is based solely on the actual voting records, irrespective of partisan affiliation.

“Senator Rick Gudex has demonstrated a strong commitment to economic growth,” Manley said. “He stood up for mining reform so our state can have high-wage jobs. He cut over $1 billion in taxes, cut red tape, and clamped down on frivolous lawsuits. Wisconsin will be a better place for our children and our grandchildren because of his work to pass pro-growth policies into law.”
