Mr. Ribble goes to Washington

Former NRCA president Reid Ribble recently made two big decisions in his life: He announced his candidacy for Wisconsin's 8th Congressional District, as well as his departure from the roofing industry (he was president of The Ribble Group, Kaukauna, Wis.).

Ribble is challenging Steve Kagen, a two-term Democratic incumbent who Ribble says "claims he's right of center but governs on the far left."

Ribble decided to run for the House of Representatives after receiving encouragement from his family. Ribble says he frequently complained about big government, and his son finally told him: "Dad, you always said if we don't like the circumstances, we need to change the circumstances. When are you going to get in the game?"

Ribble particularly is concerned about the U.S.' health care crisis and the state of the economy.
