Denver, Colorado – Today, Colorado’s leading construction association, the Associated Builders and Contractors Rocky Mountain Chapter (ABCRMC), announced the endorsement of Walker Stapleton’s campaign for Colorado Governor. This is the first endorsement from a major business or trade association in the 2018 Governor’s race.
Doug Carlson, President/CEO of the Rocky Mountain Chapter, sent out the following statement on the endorsement:
“The chapter is proud to recognize Walker Stapleton for his support of merit shop contractors and the principles of open competition, free enterprise, lower taxes and responsible government regulation. Stapleton understands that businesses create jobs with good public policy. Stapleton has a proven pro-business track record as State Treasurer.”
“Stapleton’s common sense approach to reforms will allow him to champion polices that create jobs instead of pursuing an agenda of burdensome regulations that hinder job creation,” said Rob Marceau, RK Mechanical and 2018 ABCRMC Chairman of the Board. “This is a critical election and ABC Rocky Mountain Chapter is ready to get to work and help elect Walker Stapleton Colorado’s next Governor.”
ABCRMC represents over 400 commercial and industrial construction and industry related firms employing over 75,000 workers in the Rocky Mountain.
