NFIB PAC Endorses Bill Maresh Over Representative Zack Stephenson

ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 22, 2020

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) PAC, the political arm of the state’s most influential small business group, today announced its endorsement of challenger Bill Maresh over incumbent Representative Zack Stephenson in the District 36A House race. “Maresh scored a perfect 100% on the NFIB candidate questionnaire and has a great commitment and concern for small business,” said Mike Hickey, NFIB Minnesota State Director. He supports funding our massive state government without additional general tax increases, supports the critical section 179 conformity with federal tax law that will greatly help many small businesses and farmers, and a much needed preemption law prohibiting cities from enacting minimum wage increases that exceed the state’s and other employment mandates on local businesses. He also supports many other small business priorities. In stark contrast, Rep. Stephenson made many votes detrimental to small business during the 2019–20 session and had a disappointing 29% rating. He voted for a massive 70% increase in the state gas tax, a large, unjustifiable $3 billion tax increase over the next four years while the state was running a $1 billion surplus, and also supported an excessively expensive new $1 billion state paid family leave program that would place a new tax on every employer and worker in the state. All of these bills were strongly opposed by NFIB. “The choice for the small business community in the House District 36A race is an easy one, we are enthusiastically endorsing Bill Maresh and hope to see him serve in the legislature and help enact a pro small business agenda in St. Paul,” said Hickey. Endorsement of Maresh by the NFIB Minnesota PAC is based on positions taken on key small business issues including healthcare, taxes, labor, and regulatory issues.

RETIRING REP. MARK UGLEM ENDORSES BILL MARESH FOR HOUSE

Retiring Rep. Mark Uglem, R-Champlin, announced today his endorsement of Bill Maresh, a longtime Champlin Park teacher and wrestling coach, for Minnesota House for District 36A. Uglem has served the district, which is comprised of Champlin and parts of Coon Rapids, since 2013 and announced his retirement earlier this year. Prior to his legislative service, Uglem served as Mayor of Champlin for six years. 

"Bill Maresh has my full support to be the next state representative for Champlin and Coon Rapids," Uglem said. "Bill is one of us—he's a longtime Champlin resident, a teacher, a dad, and a coach. He has served the community in the classroom for more than 25 years, and now I hope you'll join me in supporting him as he looks to serve as our next state representative. Bill shares our community's values and will fight at the legislature to lower health care costs, reduce taxes on middle-class families, and use his experience as a teacher to strengthen our schools." 

"Mark Uglem has been a champion for our community, and has made our area a better place to live through his service as a Mayor and State Representative," Maresh said. "It's an honor to have his endorsement, and I will work every day to build on his work on behalf of families in Champlin and Coon Rapids as your next state representative."  Maresh has worked as a teacher at Champlin Park High School for 25 years, and has been the head wrestling coach since 1993. Please vote for 'Coach' Bill Maresh in the general election November 6th.
