NFIB Endorses Jay Fant in House District 15
Tallahassee, July 29, 2014 – The National Federation of Independent Business, Florida’s leading small-business association, today announced its endorsement of Jay Fant in House District 15.
“Jay’s business experience in the district has given him an understanding of the issues facing Florida’s small business owners, and his focus on reducing taxes and regulations, enacting lawsuit reform, and eliminating the roadblocks hindering small business growth show that he’s committed to helping Florida’s job creators,” said Bill Herrle, NFIB/Florida Executive Director. “Jay is the best candidate in the district who is fully devoted to supporting small business in the Florida House, and we feel he can provide steady leadership to ensure that Florida maintains its pro-business climate.”
Jay’s emphasis on reducing the burdens placed on small business owners shows his dedication to helping entrepreneurs succeed.
“As a career small businessman, I am honored by the NFIB's endorsement," said Jay Fant. “Their commitment to conservative principles, limited government, and free enterprise match up with mine, and I look forward to working closely with them in the Florida Legislature. By reducing taxes and re-shaping our regulatory structure to work with businesses instead of against them, we will create an economic environment in which everyone can succeed."
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.
