Eklund Endorsed by Small Business for Ohio Senate Seat

Date: August 31, 2016

The National Federation of Independent Business/Ohio (NFIB/Ohio), the state’s leading small business association representing 25,000 entrepreneurs, is proud to announce its endorsement of Sen. John Eklund, who is seeking re-election to Ohio’s 18th Senate District seat. The district is home to 858 dues paying members of NFIB/Ohio. This endorsement today comes from the NFIB/Ohio SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action committee. 

Sen. Eklund has a platform of being a strong voice for fiscal responsibility, smaller government, and lower taxes.  During his tenure in the Ohio Senate, he has been a dedicated advocate on areas of concern to Ohio entrepreneurs, earning a 100% voting record with NFIB. The issues he champions are the same that the members of NFIB/Ohio have identified through surveying done by the organization of small-business owners throughout the state.

“Sen. Eklund has been approved through NFIB/Ohio’s member-driven process that thoroughly reviews candidates’ records, stated positions and understanding of small-business issues before an endorsement is issued,” said Roger R. Geiger, vice president and executive director of NFIB/Ohio. “During his tenure in the Ohio Legislature, he demonstrated a true understanding of what is important to Ohio’s small business community. We are happy to endorse Sen. Eklund for another term in the Ohio Senate.”

“I am very thankful to the NFIB and its members, not just for their endorsement, but for everything they do, every day, to help make Ohio and the 18th Senate District great places to live, work and raise our families.  Small business owners are the backbone of our economy and I am humbled by their support,” said Eklund.
