ALBANY, Oct. 2, 2018 – NFIB today announced that its New York political action committee has endorsed 74 candidates for state Assembly and Senate ahead of New York’s November General Election. Assemblyman Kevin Byrne (R,C, Ref) from New York’s 94th Assembly District (Putnam and northern Westchester) was among the list of endorsed candidates.
“New York’s small and independent businesses employ half of our state’s workforce. Small businesses create opportunities and drive local economies across New York. The best way to grow the small business economy, is to send small business supporters to Albany,” said Greg Biryla, NFIB’s NY State Director. “NFIB NY PAC’s endorsed candidates have demonstrated through words and action that they will be the champions that small businesses need on the issues that matter most.”
NFIB is the leading small-business association with ten thousand members in New York representing nearly every conceivable type of employer or industry in the state’s economy. The endorsements come from NFIB’s NY PAC, the association’s state political action committee, and are based on positions regarding key small-business issues including taxes, health care, labor, economic development and regulatory issues.
Small-business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members, and acquaintances to go to the polls. NFIB will encourage its members to help turn out the #SmallBizVoter for NFIB NY PAC-endorsed candidates in the 2018 General Election.
