Reid Ribble is a fine example of the citizen representative compelled to run for office by the recklessness and arrogance of entrenched politicians. He has spent his life to this point in the private sector as an entrepreneur and a volunteer in the community. Ribble has led his roofing company to growth, success, and financial stability and has been selected by his peers to represent them as President of the National Roofing Contractors Association and President of the Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress. Ribble’s volunteerism includes serving as Varsity Volleyball coach at Appleton East High School for over twenty years, Director at WEMI radio, Director and Chairman of the Board of Life Promotions, and serving on the corporate Board of Directors for the Fox Valley YMCA.
Throughout the vetting process Ribble has proven to be a thoughtful and well read candidate. He is a fervent supporter of state’s rights, the 10th Amendment, and the Constitution as a whole. As such, he supports passage of the Enumerated Powers Act which would require all laws passed by Congress to meet Constitutional requirements. As a successful businessman, Ribble knows what it takes to create jobs in the private sector and how to eliminate the government interference currently hindering the free-market with overregulation and high taxes. He supports a repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act also known as “Obamacare” and proposes replacing it with sound reforms such as competition across state lines, portable coverage, and a reduction of frivolous lawsuits.
For these reasons, the Fox Valley Initiative is proud to endorse Reid Ribble for the 8th Congressional District of Wisconsin.
There's been a fair amount of griping among GOP voters here in WI-8 about endorsements and money from outside the district. Some of it deserved and some of it not so deserved in my opinion. Regardless, this is a major endorsement by a serious organization, and I am sure they did not make this lightly. Conservatives and others concerned with responsible government should definitely take note.
