The political action committee of the National Federation of Independent Business/Ohio, the state’s leading small business association representing 25,000 entrepreneurs, is proud to announce its endorsement of Rep. Scott Ryan, who is seeking re-election to Ohio’s 71st House District seat. The district is home to 200 dues paying members of NFIB/Ohio. This endorsement today comes from the NFIB/Ohio SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action committee.
Ryan is a small-business owner and a member of NFIB. He is currently one of the 34 dues paying members of NFIB serving in the Ohio Legislature. As a fellow small-business owner, Rep. Ryan’s shared perspective with Ohio’s entrepreneurs allows him to understand the issues NFIB/Ohio advocates for and against at the Ohio Statehouse. During his time in the Ohio House of Representatives, he has been supportive of cutting taxes and lowering the cost of doing business in Ohio. Those ideas are embraced by the membership as shown by the results of NFIB/Ohio’s surveying of small-business owners throughout the state.
“Representative Ryan 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 member of NFIB serving in the Ohio Legislature with a 100% voting record on our issues, he understands the issues important to Ohio’s entrepreneurs. It is always a pleasure to endorse another member of NFIB. We appreciate his willingness to offer his valuable time at the Ohio Statehouse as he steps away from his family business to benefit all Ohioans.”
“Small businesses are vital to job creation and to the success of our communities. Thank you to all fellow small business people who are willing to take the risk each and every day,” said Representative Ryan.
