National Federation of Independent Business cites candidate’s strong support for small business friendly initiatives
Washington, D.C. (September 14, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners, is endorsing Phil Oliva for New York’s 18th Congressional District. Oliva’s commitment to issues that small business owners care about makes him an ideal candidate for Congress.
“Phil Oliva would be a strong voice for small business owners in Congress,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “He knows that we need strong small businesses if we want to have a strong economy and good jobs. In the House, he would work to reduce the burden of regulations and high taxes.”
“I’m proud to receive NFIB’s endorsement. I will be a champion in Congress for our small businesses and entrepreneurs and help them lead us back to economic vitality,” said Oliva. “As a small business owner myself I certainly know the many burdens placed on small businesses by our government and I will work to reduce as many of these unnecessary regulations and mandates as possible so that Main Street can thrive and create the good jobs we need.”
Oliva’s endorsement today comes from the NFIB SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action committee. Small business owners vote in high percentages and they are influential in their communities. NFIB members in New York’s 18th Congressional District will work hard to send Phil Oliva to Congress.
