Delafield – On Monday, just six days after special election for the 33rd Senate
District was declared, Representative Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) submitted
more than double the necessary 400 signatures via nomination papers to the
Government Accountability Board. With the support of a team of volunteers, the
Kapenga campaign was able to turn in the maximum number allowed.

“While gathering signatures to appear on the ballot, I spoke to many voters who
reaffirmed their support of the right record of less taxes and greater opportunity
that I’ve delivered as a member of the Assembly over the past five years,” said
Rep. Kapenga. “With six weeks until the June 23rd primary, I’m excited to couple
the right record with the right plan, and use the campaign to share with voters
how I think we can reform government to be more efficient and less costly to the

Kapenga, who was reelected to his third term in the Assembly last fall, has put
together an impressive record in short order that includes:

• Fighting for the passage of Act 10 during his first term, saving taxpayers
• Helped discover a billion dollar secret UW slush fund during his second
• Leading the charge on Right to Work this year, despite strong opposition
from all corners; and
• Is a sponsor of the hotly debated legislation to repeal the Prevailing Wage
Law, which costs taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

“A working Wisconsin works best, is a belief I shared with voters during my first
successful run for the assembly, and it has served as a guiding principle
throughout my service,” said Rep. Kapenga. “My commitment to helping
taxpayers keep more of their money while fighting to get government out of the
way of opportunity has earned me the trust of voters and clearly distinguishes me
from the competition.”

Kapenga, who was the lead Assembly author on Right to Work, has served as
State Representative for the 99th Assembly district since 2010. He is a Certified
Public Accountant and owner of a technology company with offices around the
country. Kapenga resides in Delafield with his wife and two daughters.
