Harrisonburg — The National Federation of Independent Business’ state political action committee has endorsed Tony Wilt in the 26th District House District race.
Delegate Wilt clearly understands the challenges facing Virginia’s job creators,” said Nicole Riley, state director of NFIB Virginia. “Our members believe he will take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps our small businesses grow and create jobs.”
NFIB Virginia’s agenda in the 2018 legislative session will include tax reform, easing the regulatory burden on small businesses, and bringing health insurance costs under control.
“I appreciate all that NFIB does at the state and federal level to advance policies that are favorable for small businesses and job creation,” said Delegate Wilt. “I’m honored to have their endorsement. Since small businesses represent roughly half of private sector employment and consistently lead the way in new job growth, the success of our economy and job creation absolutely depends on the success of small businesses. The General Assembly must strive to advance policies that encourage small business and job growth.”
NFIB is Virginia’s leading small-business association. The endorsement was made by NFIB Virginia PAC, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members. NFIB has pledged it will activate its grassroots network on behalf of the campaign. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
