The National Federation of Independent Business,
California’s and the nation’s leading small business association, today
announced the endorsement of Steve Glazer for Senate District 7.
“NFIB is proud to endorse Steve Glazer for the State
Senate,” said John Kabateck, NFIB/CA
executive director. “He believes, as do our members, that government
needs to live within its means. Unlike his opponent, Steve opposes extending Prop.
30 small business taxes, wants to protect Proposition 13 property tax
protections, and is committed to stopping the powerful special interests have
dominated the State Capitol for too long.”
Judy Lloyd, NFIB/CA Leadership Council member and owner
of Altamont Strategies in Danville, agreed. “Steve will be a reasonable
voice in Sacramento. There are not enough legislators who support small
businesses and we create 67% of the jobs in California. I look forward to
working with him to ensure that small business owners can grow their businesses,
create jobs and thrive.”
Cliff Luengo, NFIB/CA
Leadership Council member and owner of RB Construction in Fremont, said,
“Steve has set himself apart from the typical union-backed Democrat and has
taken a stand against out-of-control pensions and government spending. He will
be a strong advocate for businesses in his district such as mine.”
NFIB has more than 21,000 dues-paying members in California
representing a cross-section of the state’s economy. The endorsement comes from NFIB’s SAFE (Save
America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the organization’s political action
committee, and is based on positions regarding key small-business issues
including health care, taxes, labor and regulatory issues.
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.
