The Wisconsin Economic Development Association (WEDA) recently presented Rep. Warren Petryk (R-Eleva) with the 2018 “Champion of Economic Development” Award for his support of policies to drive economic growth and prosperity in Wisconsin.

The award is presented to state legislators who exemplify WEDA’s mission of promoting economic development and have shown a commitment to making Wisconsin a better place to live, work and do business through policies that advance economic growth. Rep. Petryk earned the designation through his support of pro-economic development legislation during the 2017-18 legislative session.

WEDA is presenting the award to 20 state lawmakers who exhibited an exceptional commitment to growing Wisconsin’s economy based on several factors, including voting record, sponsorship of legislation and responsiveness to critical economic development issues during the 2017-18 session.

Petryk is a very loyal Republican. He walks the party line very well. Any Democrats get an award?
