The political action committee of the National Federation of
Independent Business/Ohio, the state’s leading small business association, today announced its
endorsement of John Kasich’s bid to be Ohio’s next governor.

In determining this
endorsement, NFIB/Ohio thoroughly vetted both Ohio gubernatorial candidates
through a member-driven process which included a fax survey of NFIB small
business members and personal interviews with the candidates conducted by
members of NFIB/Ohio. After completing the process, current Ohio Governor John
Kasich was a clear choice of Ohio small-business owners.

During Kasich’s long tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives,
he earned a 93.4 percent favorable NFIB voting record and is a past recipient
of the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award. During the past four years as
Ohio’s governor his small business friendly policies have included:

  • Elimination
    of Ohio’s Death Tax
  • Emphasis
    on Workforce Development
  • Implementation
    of the Common Sense Initiative
  • Creation
    of Pass Through Entity State Tax Deductions
  • Accelerated
    Personal Income Tax Cuts
  • Notification
    of Tax Over Payments

“Four years ago small businesses recognized the need for a change
in leadership in Ohio. The economic climate was stymieing their ability to grow
and create jobs. The entrepreneurs of Ohio believed in the vision offered by
the Kasich-Taylor team,” said Roger R. Geiger, vice president/executive
director of NFIB/Ohio. “Their faith has been rewarded through sound tax,
regulatory and fiscal policies.  By
eliminating Ohio’s death tax, creating the Common Sense Initiative, placing an
emphasis on workforce development and returning hard earned dollars back to the
job creators, this administration clearly recognizes the importance of small
business in Ohio’s overall economy.  We
are proud to once again endorse the Kasich-Taylor team to continue to lead Ohio
forward.”

“What’s good for small business is good for Ohio,” said Gov. Kasich.
“Helping small businesses do what they do best – create jobs – has been our
focus over the past four years, and they’ve responded by helping our state to
add over a quarter million new private sector jobs.  Today, the job creators have spoken and it’s
an honor to have their support.” 

Lt.
Gov. Taylor added, “Small business owners are the lifeblood of our state and
our communities.  They’re the little
league sponsors, the good Samaritans who help you up when you’re down, and the
job creators who give people a chance at a brighter future. With the support of
NFIB/Ohio, our team can keep up Ohio’s momentum for another four years and
finish the job we’ve started.”
