Superior, WI — Janet Bewley, Democratic candidate for Wisconsin’s 25th State Senate District seat, has been endorsed by the Sheet Metal, Air, Rail And Transportation Workers (SMART) Transportation Division’s Wisconsin Legislative Board.  SMART is one of North America’s most dynamic and diverse unions with 216,000 members. SMART’s members produce and provide the vital services that move products to market, passengers to their destinations and ensure the quality of the air we breathe.

“I’m grateful to have their support,” said Bewley. “You’ll find SMART members working in shipyards, in our growing railroad industry, servicing HVAC systems in homes and businesses, as well as transporting your loved ones. They are committed to protecting the public’s safety, including leading the fight against the unsafe shipment of hazardous materials.”

Janet Bewley’s campaign for the State Senate has broad community support. Janet currently serves in the Wisconsin State Assembly, representing the 74th Assembly District, which makes up one third of the 25th Senate District. Prior to serving in the Assembly, Janet’s professional career in northern Wisconsin spanned almost 30 years, including the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority, HRK Group, Bayfield, Mary H. Rice Foundation, Northland College, and the Ashland City Council.
