Jorgensen has worked as a dairy farmer, assembly line operator at General Motors, morning radio talk show host, and shop steward with the United Auto Workers.
He is a member of the Jefferson County Agribusiness Club, Jefferson County Farm Bureau, Jefferson County Labor Council, Local 95 - United Auto Workers, and Local Community Action Program - United Auto Workers.
On his campaign website Jorgensen lists a number of legislative priorities, including:
- Access to Affordable Health Care - "increasing access to affordable health care has been - and is - one of Andy Jorgensen's top priorities."
- Tax Relief for Working Families - "in tight economic times, state government should tighten its belt right along with working families. As the 2007-08 budget was drafted, he was an independent voice for his district, calling for cuts at the agency level."
- Quality Education for All - "parents want the best possible educational opportunities for their kids, at the best possible price. Andy has always supported 2/3rds funding from the state for public schools."
- Creating Economic Opportunities - "federal government must take action to turn the economy around, but he believes the state should address economic issues, too. By maintaining our quality educational system, supporting job training programs, and keeping the quality of life high, our leaders - like Andy - can ensure Wisconsin is an attractive place to open and grow a business."
