Small Businesses Endorse Roby for Reelection

annrobymarthausrepresentative.jpgThe National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners, is endorsing Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) for reelection. Roby has a strong record of standing up for small business in the U.S. House and should continue representing the Second District of Alabama.

“Congresswoman Roby is a strong voice for small business in Washington,” said NFIB/Alabama State Director Rosemary Elebash. “Through her service on the House Appropriations Committee, she has worked to stop Obama administration rules and regulations that threaten our state’s small businesses. We’re especially grateful for what she has done for veteran owned businesses. She knows that small business owners need to be free of red tape in order for them to grow our economy and create good jobs.”

“I am honored to have the support of the NFIB,” said Roby. “Since I was elected to Congress, I’ve had dozens of roundtable meetings with NFIB members in which I was able to listen directly to independent business owners about the challenges they are facing. Homegrown Alabama businesses are the heart of our economy, and I’m proud to fight on their behalf in Congress.”

Roby qualified for an endorsement from the NFIB by achieving a 100 percent positive rating on votes scored in the current Congress. The list of scored votes is available here.

“Small business owners are engaged in elections and vote for legislators who help them succeed,” said Elebash. “I am certain that NFIB members will work hard to make sure Congresswoman Roby is back in the House next year.”

Roby’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 is the nation’s leading small business association, with offices in Washington, D.C. and all 50 state capitals.
