Conservative business group backs George Allen
The announcement was made in Richmond this morning at Cranemasters with Nicole Riley, state director of NFIB Virginia, and Cranemasters President Brian Isringhausen. Cranemasters Inc. is an innovative small business that provides specialized crane services for rail industry construction, maintenance and removal.
“I’m honored to have earned the endorsement of the voice of America’s job creating small business men and women, the National Federation of Independent Business,” said Allen. “The NFIB and I envision a better future where Virginia small business owners have the freedom and opportunity they need to grow, innovate and create new jobs for men and women.
‘As Virginia’s voice in the U.S. Senate, I will continue to stand for a hassle-free, efficient and more accountable government that empowers small businesses to grow. We need less burdensome tax laws, reasonable regulations, affordable energy and real health care reform. I look forward to partnering with the small businesses of NFIB as we work to build a better future for Virginia families and businesses and send a message to the world that America is Open for Business Again.”
The National Federation of Independent Business cited George Allen’s commitment to tax reform and health-care reform in earning this endorsement.
“George Allen has been consistent in his push to reduce the tax burden placed on businesses and individuals,” said Riley. “He has shown solidarity with our membership by publicly expressing his opposition to recent National Labor Relations Board actions such as ‘ambush elections’ and his push to enact real health-care reform that lowers costs for individuals and small businesses really resonates with NFIB members in Virginia. George Allen is the proven small-business advocate that our members so desperately need in Virginia.”
