MEDFORD – On Tuesday, Representative James Edming (R-Glen Flora) received the 2019-2020 “Building Wisconsin Award” from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Wisconsin for his support of policies to address the construction skills gap during the 2019-2020 legislative session. The award was presented at Huotari Construction in Medford.
“ABC of Wisconsin is proud to recognize Rep. Edming as an integral leader on behalf of Wisconsin’s construction employers and employees,” ABC of Wisconsin President John Mielke said. “Rep. Edming’s efforts have gone a long way toward allowing more Wisconsinites to get and keep family- sustaining lifelong construction careers that cannot be outsourced overseas.”
According to ABC of Wisconsin, Rep. Edming is among less than a quarter of Wisconsin legislators recognized for their efforts with this bipartisan award.
“As chairman of the Assembly Committee on Labor and Integrated Employment I am honored to receive this prestigious award from the folks who build Wisconsin,” said Rep. Edming. “Next session I hope to continue the effort to close the skills gap and strengthen our state’s labor force.”
The 87th Assembly District includes portions of Clark, Marathon, Rusk, Sawyer and Taylor Counties.
