With his characteristic energy and dedication, he’s been meeting our district voters and listening to their concerns.
Working the past nine years in manufacturing, he has solved difficult problems. In the private sector political parties must be ignored and many ideas considered. Steil has taken this approach as a member of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents. He was unanimously confirmed for the board by both sides of the Wisconsin Senate.
I have known Steil for many years as a 1st District conservative activist. He was born and raised in Janesville. In contrast, opponent Nick Polce has no ties to our district. He is a product of the East Coast — born, raised, attended college there, but tellingly, you won’t find any of this on his website. He moved here from the East Coast in 2016, with no prior connection to the 1st District. He admitted he “did not know a soul” here when moving (The Hill, April 13, 2018).
Apparently, he moved planning to run for our congressional seat, instead of running where he already lived. How can he really know what we have gone through together here; the closing of Janesville’s General Motors plant and Parker Pen plants, the tumult of Act 10, the problems of the family farm and so much more.
As one of us, Bryan Steil will represent the interests of southeast Wisconsin. Join me in voting for him on Aug. 14.
