NFIB Endorses Colleen Burton in House District 40Tallahassee, July 30, 2014 – The National Federation of Independent Business, Florida’s leading small-business association, today announced its endorsement of Colleen Burton in House District 40.
“Colleen’s focus on economic development is exactly what the Florida House needs,” said Bill Herrle, NFIB/Florida Executive Director. “Colleen understands the issues and challenges facing small businesses, and we feel she will be an effective ally to the small business community.”
Colleen’s commitment to economic development champions the driving force of our economy: small businesses. Her work developing Polk Vision, a comprehensive community planning process, proved her ability to connect business, government, and local citizens.
The endorsement comes from the NFIB/Florida SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the political action committee for NFIB/Florida’s membership, and is based on candidates’ positions regarding key small-business issues including healthcare, taxes, and labor and regulatory issues.
