Small Business Backs McGorty in 122nd District Special Election

National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) cites candidate’s private sector experience and his positions on the issues


Hartford (July 15, 2014) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) today endorsed Realtor and businessman Ben McGorty of Shelton in bid to represent the 122nd District in the July 22nd Special Election.

“Ben’s positions on the issues align perfectly with our membership but we were most impressed by his private sector experience,” said NFIB Connecticut State Director Andrew Markowski.  “That kind of experience is badly needed in Hartford”. 

The 122nd House District includes Shelton, Stratford and Trumbull.  In addition to his work in real estate and activity in the community, McGorty is also the owner of an insurance inspection business.  He wants to cut taxes, broaden the state’s economic strategy, and support technical training for skilled manufacturing jobs. 

“Connecticut has one of the worst reputations in America as a place to do business and Ben understands how that affects investment and job growth,” said Markowski.  “His positions as a candidate are clearly informed by his private sector experience and he’ll be a great asset for small business in the House.” 

McGorty is running against Arlene Liscinsky, also of Shelton.  His endorsement was made by the NFIB SAFE-Trust, the group’s political action committee.  Small business owners are influential in their communities and NFIB members will work hard to send Ben McGorty to Hartford.
