Members of the Iron Range Building and Construction Trades voted unanimously to endorse Dave Lislegard for the Minnesota House 6B race. The endorsement is Lislegard’s first after announcing his DFL candidacy on Sunday.
“Dave is and has been a champion of labor for the men and women of the Iron Range Building and Construction Trades. We know he will bring our voice and the values of the Iron Range down to the capital,” said Mike Syversrud, president of the Iron Range Building and Construction Trades. “We’re proud to stand with him and give him our endorsement”
The Iron Range Building and Construction Trades represent over 6,000 men and women in Northeastern Minnesota. Their support illustrates Lislegard’s commitment to a pro-labor, pro-business and pro-jobs approach to building healthy communities on the Iron Range.
“I’m honored to receive this endorsement of the Iron Range Building and Construction Trades,” Lislegard said. “The work they do is part of the backbone of our communities. I hope to represent all of the hard-working men and women of our region in St. Paul to ensure they have every opportunity to support their families and carry on the Iron Range way of life.”
