SACRAMENTO, Calif., February 8, 2016 – The National Federation of Independent Business, California’s and the nation’s leading small business association, today announced the endorsement of Vince Fong for Assembly District 34.
“NFIB is proud to enthusiastically endorse Vince Fong for the State Assembly – the top candidate in this race with the experience and commitment to fight for small businesses and job creation,” said Tom Scott, NFIB/CA State Executive Director. “Vince has a track record of advocating for policies that support job creators throughout and beyond the Central Valley. As a respected and recognized leader in the region, we have every confidence he will come to Sacramento and fight to reduce the burdens small businesses face every day. The State Assembly needs more leaders like Vince and we enthusiastically endorse his candidacy.”
NFIB represents 22,000 dues-paying small business members in California comprising a cross-section of the state’s economy. The endorsement comes from NFIB’s SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the organization’s political action committee, and is based on positions regarding key small-business issues including health care, taxes, labor, and regulatory issues.
Small business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members, and acquaintances to go to the polls. NFIB will encourage its members to help turn out the small-business vote for candidates in the June 7 primary, and again in November.
For more than 70 years, the National Federation of Independent Business has been the Voice of Small Business, taking the message from Main Street to the halls of Congress and all 50 state legislatures. NFIB annually surveys its members on state and federal issues vital to their survival as America’s economic engine and biggest creator of jobs. NFIB’s educational mission is to remind policymakers that small businesses are not smaller versions of bigger businesses; they have very different challenges and priorities.
