Darling receives WMC award

Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC) recently honored State Sen. Alberta Darling (River Hills) with the Working for Wisconsin Award at Advanced Manufacturing Technologies Inc. in Grafton.


The WMC says 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. The WMC reports that Darling voted 100 percent to support job-creating legislation.

“Sen. Darling was a true-leader for job creation and voted time and again to support pro-growth policies in the Legislature,” said Kurt Bauer, WMC president and chief executive officer.

“Senator Alberta Darling has demonstrated a strong commitment to economic growth,” said Scott Manley, vice president of government relations for the WMC. “She stood up for mining reform so our state can have high-wage jobs. She 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 her work to pass pro-growth policies into law.”
