 HARTFORD (February 24, 2017): The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Connecticut PAC announced their endorsement today of Eric C. Berthel in the 32nd Senate District, which consists of the towns of Bethlehem, Bridgewater, Middlebury, Oxford, Roxbury, Seymour, Southbury, Washington, and Woodbury. The special election will take place next Tuesday.


“Representative Berthel has repeatedly proven that his focus is on what is best for the small business community. While in the House, he supported legislation to reduce burdensome policies on our members and advocated for pro-growth reforms,” according to NFIB Regional Public Policy Director, Tim Goodrich. “Our members would be fortunate to have him continue his advocacy efforts in the Senate with fellow lawmakers determined to make a difference for small business owners.”


Berthel was first elected to the House of Representatives in 2014. He made the decision to run for Senate when his district’s seat became vacant due to resignation. According to the candidate survey that he submitted, as a Senator, Mr. Berthel will continue to prioritize economic growth through reforming state government.


“Reducing the overall cost of doing business by cutting taxes and eliminating redundant regulations will go a long way towards improving the state’s fiscal environment. Representative Berthel is an excellent example of the type of lawmaker needed to ensure that moving forward, Connecticut can reach its full potential,” continued Goodrich. “The groundwork has been laid to drastically reform how things have been done in the past, electing Eric Berthel to the Senate would be an excellent next step to move forward.”
