SACRAMENTO, Calif., Oct. 4, 2022—The political action committee for California’s largest and leading small-business association today announced its endorsement of Suzette Valladares for State Assembly.

“In my decades of advocating in Sacramento, I have never seen a freshman legislator move from learner to leader as rapidly as Assembly Member Suzette Valladares has,” said John Kabateck, California state director for the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), speaking for the NFIB CA PAC, which made the endorsement. “And it’s solely due to the respect she’s earned from both sides of the political aisle as someone who can get things done for the one team too many lawmakers forget they’re on first and foremost—the people who sent them to Sacramento. As a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, she has been able to achieve some impressive victories not only for small businesses but also for all Californians. Suzette Valladares is small businesses’ choice for State Assembly.”

The new 40th Assembly District includes the northern Los Angeles County communities of Castaic, Castaic Junction, Chatsworth, Forest Park, Granada Hills, Granada Hills North, Humphreys, Lang, Newhall, Northridge, Pico, Porter Ranch, Santa Clarita, Twin Lakes, Saugus, Stevenson Ranch, and Valencia.

NFIB’s national membership spans the spectrum of business operations, ranging from sole proprietor enterprises to firms with hundreds of employees. While there is no standard definition of a small business, the typical NFIB member employs 10 people and reports gross sales of about $500,000 a year. The NFIB membership is a reflection of American small business. Small-business owners are also a potent political force.
