Born and raised in Brownsville, Tim Michels, endorsed by President Trump, is a conservative outsider who has a plan to put Wisconsin on the right track.

At the age of nine, Tim’s dad handed him a shovel and taught him how to dig trenches, while his mom taught him how to drive trucks. After graduating from Lomira High School in Dodge County, he attended Saint Norbert College in Green Bay, where he was active in ROTC. Following college, he continued his service in uniform by joining the United States Army. He served for 12 years, leaving the service with a rank of Major.

He returned home to help grow the family business alongside his brothers. At the time, Michels Corporation had a few hundred employees, which is now Wisconsin’s largest construction company with more than 8,000 employees. Tim knows how to lead, he always has a plan, and he won’t quit until the job is done.

As governor, Tim Michels will fix Wisconsin’s economy by bringing his business and leadership experience to Madison. He will always back the blue, back parents in public education, cut taxes, keep schools open five days a week, and ensure our elections are fair and transparent. He will make Wisconsin the greatest place to work, live, and raise a family.

Tim and his wife, Barbara, live in Hartland, Wisconsin. Their three adult children were born at Waukesha Memorial Hospital and attended Wisconsin schools through 2013.
