The National Federation of Independent Business, California’s and the nation’s leading small business association, today announced the endorsement of Mario de la Piedra for Assembly District 44.
“NFIB is proud to endorse Mario de la Piedra for the Assembly because he is the only candidate in this race who knows what it means to be a small business owner and create jobs,” said John Kabateck, NFIB/CA executive director. “Mario recognizes that taxes, regulations and frivolous lawsuits are destroying mom and pop businesses and jobs in his district and California, and he is the one candidate with the experience, vision and commitment to get our state back on the road to recovery.”
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
candidates in the June 3 primary and again in November.
