Vote for Elijah Behnke for State Assembly 89th District of Wisconsin on April 6th.
For State Assembly 89th District OF WISCONSIN
Hello Wisconsinites, I’m running to represent you in the Assembly because I love this district! I’m born and raised here on a small farm! As a small business owner I want to work for small businesses! We need our kids back in school! I believe in small government and fiscal responsibility!
Elijah has had hard work instilled in him his entire life. He was born in Oconto Falls Memorial Hospital in 1983 to his parents, Darwin and Christine. As the second oldest of four kids, Elijah and his siblings were given chores to do as soon as they could learn to walk. These are lessons he has carried with him through his entire life.
Elijah’s parents owned 15 acres on County J in the heart of the district. His dad went to work in Green Bay daily for his full time job, leaving Elijah and his siblings to spend a lot of time taking care of the cows. At an early age Elijah learned how to operate farm equipment, instilling responsibility in him at an early age.
Elijah was always an entrepreneur at heart, taking various jobs on the farm to earn a few dollars as a boy. Elijah has always worked a couple of jobs at once and is no stranger to working long hours.
Elijah graduated from Oconto high in 2001 and went to bible college in Northeast Georgia. Upon moving back to Wisconsin in 2006 he started working for his mother’s cleaning business. After studying under her for over a year, he started his own cleaning company due to an increase in business. Over the years his business had grown rapidly.
And then the government stepped in. During the Covid pandemic, the Government stepped in and instituted several bureaucratic measures, which affected Elijah’s business. One of the main reasons Elijah decided to run was to stand up for business owners and workers. The Governor classified Elijah’s business as nonessential.
Elijah believes that all work is essential. Any job that puts food on the table, money in your pocket and the ability to feed your family should be deemed essential. While Elijah believes in taking safety precautions during these Covid times, he also believes in common sense and allowing people the freedom to decide what is best for them.
Elijah will use all of his life lessons and core values of faith, family and hard work to represent all citizens of the 89th. He will fight everyday to make sure you and your family succeed.
