The Small Business Candidate for Ohio HD 47
The political action committee of the National Federation of Independent Business/Ohio, the state’s leading small business association representing 23,000 entrepreneurs, is proud to announce its endorsement of Rep. Derek Merrin who is seeking re-election to Ohio’s 47th House District seat. The district is home to 442 dues-paying members of NFIB/Ohio.
During his time in the Ohio Legislature Representative Merrin, a small business owner, has shown his understanding of issues that matter to the members of NFIB. He will continue to be a strong advocate for important small business issues such as sensible regulatory reform, sound tax policy, and improving workforce development in the Ohio House of Representatives. Those are all key issues to ensure a healthy economy in Ohio.
“Representative Merrin 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. “As a fellow small business owner, he understands the issues important to Ohio entrepreneurs. We look forward to working with him again in the Ohio House of Representatives in the next General Assembly.”
“It’s an honor to be supported by the NFIB OH PAC and small business owners. Local businesses are the economic engine that propels growth, job creation, and a better standard of living. We must support job creators with a business-friendly environment through tax and regulatory reform,” said Merrin.
NFIB/Ohio is the state’s leading small business advocacy organization. Merrin’s endorsement today comes from the NFIB OH PAC, the organization’s political action committee. Small business owners vote in high percentages, and they are influential in their communities.
