The National Federation of Independent Business, California’s and the nation’s leading small business association, today announced the endorsement of Assemblyman Dan Logue for U.S. House of Representatives District 3.
“NFIB is proud to support Assemblyman Dan Logue for the 3rd Congressional District,” said John Kabateck, NFIB/CA Executive Director. “From day one since his election, he has had an excellent voting record on the issues that matter to Main Street. As a small business owner and NFIB member himself, Dan understands the challenges that our members face while running their businesses each day.”
“Assemblyman Logue understands what small business owners need to succeed,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB Vice President for Political and Grassroots. “He will bring a perspective that is needed in the halls of Congress, and will stand beside our members, advocating for lower taxes, fewer regulations and the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses.”
Assemblyman Logue has defined himself as a leading champion of small business throughout his time in public service. As a member of the Yuba County Board of Supervisors, he cut excess funds from government to balance the budget and made a concerted effort to recruit businesses and jobs into the region. Through his efforts locally, Yuba County went from being rated the worst county in which to do business to the region’s best. As a member of the State Assembly, he has used his small business expertise to advocate for Main Street and jobs, and has been the leader in the legislature promoting small business and job creation. He is Chairman of the Working Group on Jobs and Economic Recovery, where he has become a lead voice on fixing the regulatory environment in our state, notably our sweeping cap and trade rules.
NFIB has more than 23,000 dues-paying members in California representing 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 Dan
Logue in the June 3 primary and again in November.
