SALEM, Ore. (Aug. 16, 2022) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, today endorsed Lori Chavez-DeRemer for election to the United States House of Representatives to represent Oregon’s 5th Congressional District.
“We know Lori Chavez-DeRemer will be a pro-small business Member of Congress,” said Anthony K. Smith, NFIB Oregon State Director. “As a small business owner, NFIB member, and former mayor of Happy Valley, she has the experience needed to promote policies that will strengthen the small business economy. She recognizes the most critical issues facing small businesses in the district are the cost of labor, the lack of workforce, excessive regulations, and over-taxation and has pledged to focus on these issues in Congress. We look forward to working with her in Washington.”
“On behalf of small businesses in Oregon’s 5th Congressional District, we are pleased to endorse Lori Chavez-DeRemer today,” said Sharon Sussin, NFIB Senior National Political Director. “She understands the issues our members face daily and will be a strong advocate for Oregon’s small businesses.”
The endorsement is issued from NFIB FedPAC, NFIB’s political action committee. NFIB FedPAC is funded by voluntary contributions by NFIB members over and above their membership dues. Decisions made by the NFIB FedPAC are managed by a member-driven grassroots evaluation.
