Albany (August 14, 2014) – The National
Federation of Independent Business (NFIB)
today announced its support for
the reelection of Congressman Tom Reed

NFIB is the
country’s leading advocate for small business owners representing roughly 10,000 members in New York.  The group endorses candidates based on their

NFIB Vice President Lisa Goeas, who heads the organization’s political and
grassroots operation, said it’s important for the country to have more people

“The last several

part of the problem,” she said.  “Tom
Reed has stood by our members on almost every tough vote.  He’s one of the most reliable defenders of
small business in Congress and we’re very proud to endorse his reelection.” 


Reed’s endorsement was made by the NFIB SAFE Trust, the organization’s
political action committee.  Surveys show
that small business owners are influential in their communities and NFIB
members in New York’s 23rd Congressional
will work hard this year to send Tom Reed back to Washington.
