NFIB Endorses French Hill for 2nd District Congressional Seat

Date: September 18, 2014

The National Federation of Independent Business, Arkansas’ and the nation’s leading small-business association, today endorsed French Hill for Congress in Arkansas’ 2nd District.
“Our members support the candidates who support small business,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB vice president for Political and Grassroots. “French Hill is the clear pro-small business candidate in this race.”
Hill is himself a business owner, having founded and run Delta Trust & Bank for the past 20 years. He served under President George H.W. Bush as deputy secretary of the treasury and as a senior advisor to Gov. Mike Huckabee. 
“French Hill’s policy expertise, coupled with his administrative and business experiences would make him a strong asset for small-business interests in Washington,” said Sylvester Smith, state director of NFIB/Arkansas.
“He favors the repeal and replacement of the health-care law with a private market that emphasizes portability, flexibility and choice for consumers, which will actually lower costs for individuals and small businesses,” Smith said. “He has routinely expressed his concern that business uncertainty is stifling economic growth, and, like our members, he believes that the uncertainty is driven by both high tax rates and burdensome regulations.”
Hill’s endorsement comes from the NFIB SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the association’s political action committee, and is based on the candidate’s positions on key small-business issues including health care, taxes and labor and regulatory issues.
NFIB has over 4,000 dues-paying members in Arkansas, representing a cross section of the state’s economy. 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 French Hill on Election Day.
