COLUMBUS, June 24, 2014 – The political action committee of the National Federation of Independent Business/Ohio, the state’s leading small business association serving over 25,000 members, today announced its endorsement of Justice Sharon Kennedy and Justice Judith French, who are seeking election to the Ohio Supreme Court.
In determining the endorsement, NFIB/Ohio thoroughly vetted candidates by a member-driven process that included a fax survey of NFIB small business members and personal interviews with candidates conducted by members of NFIB/Ohio. In both instances, French and Kennedy came out the clear winners in the eyes of Ohio small-business owners.
“Ohio small-business owners are aided in their ability to grow and thrive when there is a sense of predictability and stability, and that is no different when it applies to our judicial climate. Ohio currently enjoys one that is steady, temperate and fair,” said Roger R. Geiger, Vice President/Executive Director of NFIB/Ohio. “Justices Kennedy and French are models of judicial restraint. They approach their roles on the court with professionalism and understand the importance of judicial stability to our state’s economy.”
If you have any questions regarding any of the NFIB/Ohio SAFE Trust endorsements or the process involved, please contact NFIB/Ohio Communications Director Andy Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
