For Immediate Release
Alpine Utah – October 19, 2010 – NFIB, the voice of small business, has announced their support for U.S. Senate candidate, Mike Lee. “Mike Lee is the clear pro-small business candidate in this race, and we proudly offer him our backing and grassroots support. We know he will promote fiscal responsibility and encourage tax relief for our nation’s job creators,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB’s Vice President for Political Operations. “Our small business membership in Utah knows that Mike will champion policies that will help small businesses do what they do best: create jobs and grow the economy.”
NFIB is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization founded in 1943. The NFIB mission is to promote and protect the rights of its members to own, operate and grow their businesses. NFIB also provides its members power in the marketplace by pooling the purchasing power of its members. The organization also provides timely information designed to help small businesses succeed.
Responding to the endorsement Mike Lee said, “It is truly an honor to have the support and endorsement of NFIB and its small business members who are the heart and soul of the American dream and our economy. We must do everything possible to get government to reduce both taxes and stifling regulation so that small business owners have the confidence and certainty they need to invest in their businesses, expand operations and create real jobs. ”
Mike Lee continues to add endorsements from business owners and executives around the State of Utah and across the country. Lee’s Communications Director, Boyd Matheson commented, “Adding NFIB to the list of business leaders, from organizations large and small, shows that Mike’s message of limited government rings true with the job-creators of America. In addition to NFIB, executives from Utah’s job creators like Overstock.com, Omniture, Nuskin and Ogio, together with numerous entrepreneurs and independent business owners, have all thrown their support behind Mike.” Matheson continued, “Business people get it. They recognize that the only way to jump-start the economy and create the jobs the country needs is to reduce the size, cost and regulatory burden of the federal government. They see Mike Lee as a person perfectly suited to lead the charge for the economy and jobs in the halls of Congress. He will help get America and American business back on track.”
