His commitment to bring the state back to fiscal health appeals to small business
HARTFORD, Oct. 11, 2018 – NFIB’s Connecticut political action committee announced today it endorsed Bob Stefanowski, an experienced businessman, in the race for Connecticut Governor. When NFIB polled its members, small business owners from around the state, they gave the candidate an overwhelming thumbs up.
“Bob Stefanowski has extensive financial management experience, and he clearly understands that reducing the tax and regulatory burden on small Connecticut businesses is one of the keys to an economic resurgence in the state,” said Tim Goodrich, NFIB’s Executive Director of State Government Relations. “We saw some of the largest tax increases in history under the Malloy Administration and a slew of costly labor mandates that made it very difficult for small Connecticut businesses to survive. We enthusiastically support Bob the Rebuilder as the small-business pick for governor.”
Bob Stefanowski formerly served as a CFO of a large investment bank and recently as CEO of a global financial services company.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of NFIB and their small-business members because these hard-working people provide about half the jobs in our state,” said Bob Stefanowski. “I will rebuild the state’s economy by cutting income and business taxes, and as a result, Connecticut’s Main Streets will become vibrant once again.”
“It is important to my family company and small businesses all over the state that there be financial predictability, and I believe Bob Stefanowski understands that,” said Wendy Traub, NFIB CT PAC Chairperson. “You can’t plan capital expenses or hire new people if you are fearful that state taxes will soon rise. When companies are cautious about investing in the State’s economy, small businesses are negatively affected. I look forward to the state’s business climate improving under Stefanowski’s leadership.”
NFIB is the leading small-business association in the nation with thousands of members across Connecticut, representing a cross-section of the state’s economy. The endorsement comes from the NFIB CT PAC, the association’s state political action committee, which is comprised of small-business owners, with the approval of NFIB’s national political action committee.
