Tom Tiffany Endorsement

After interviewing the major party candidates in the Wisconsin 7th Congressional District special election, the Wisconsin REALTORS¬ģ Association and the National Association of REALTORS¬ģ political action committee (RPAC) trustees have endorsed state Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst) in the election to replace former U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy. The primary will be held on February 18 and the general election on May 12.

The 7th District seat was vacated in September when Duffy resigned, citing family considerations.

Why Tiffany?

There are several very important reasons to support Tiffany in this election, including the following:

Biography: Tiffany’s legislative experience includes serving in the Wisconsin Assembly from 2011 to 2013; he was elected to the Wisconsin Senate in 2012. Tiffany also worked for seven years as a farm cooperative representative. Prior to being elected to the Wisconsin Assembly, Tiffany and his wife owned a small excursion business, Wisconsin River Cruises. Tiffany graduated from UW-River Falls with a Bachelor of Science in agricultural economics.  Tiffany has shown that his small business background gives him a keen understanding of the real estate industry over his years in the state legislature.

Legislative record: Since his first election to the Wisconsin legislature in 2010, Tiffany has been one of the most pro-business, pro-homeowner and pro-property owner legislators in the Capitol. Over the course of his four legislative sessions, Tiffany has maintained a perfect record on WRA issues and has shown 100 percent support over eight years! Tiffany supported homeowners, property owners and REALTORS¬ģ on issues big and small. Here is a small sample of these important issues:

  • Homeowners Bill of Rights
  • Landlord tenant reform
  • Shoreland zoning
  • Unauthorized practice of law
  • Regulation of navigable waters
  • Private property rights package
  • Broker experience requirements
  • Property tax cuts
  • Deadlines for DNR permits
  • Wetland regulation reform
  • Nonconforming structures and substandard lots
  • Health savings accounts
  • Housing affordability
  • Real estate condition reports

Tom Tiffany

Experience matters: Lexico.com defines experience as, ‚ÄúThe knowledge or skill acquired by experience over a period of time, especially that gained in a particular profession by someone at work.‚ÄĚ As a candidate with extensive experience as a small businessperson and a highly effective legislator in the Capitol, Tiffany understands how to get things done. Tiffany now wants to take his private sector experience and his legislative expertise to the halls of Congress.

Please mark your calendars and remember to vote in the February 18 primary election and May 12 general election. The WRA urges you to support Tom Tiffany in the 7th Congressional District special election.
