Rep. Cory Mason, D-Racine, 62nd District, endorsed fellow State Rep. Bob Turner for mayor today.
“I have seen first-hand how Rep. Turner’s leadership has benefited the Racine community,” Mason said. “Bob’s experience as chair of the I-94 labor development committee will help bring thousands of jobs to the area.” Mason and Turner serve together on the Department of Transportation’s I-94 Labor Development Committee, which has been working to ensure Racine residents have the training they need to be hired for the project.
“Bob Turner will know what to ask of his Legislative colleagues for the benefit of Racine,” Mason said. “Racine doesn’t have the luxury of a mayoral learning curve. Bob Turner has the experience of having served on the City Council and in the Legislature; he’ll be able to hit the ground running on day one.”
Turner represents the 61st Assembly District. The special election for Racine mayor will be held on May 5. Turner is opposed by John Dickert, and write-in candidate Jody Harding.
