NFIB Endorses James Edmunds in District 60 Race
The National Federation of Independent Business, Virginia's leading small-business association, has endorsed James Edmunds in the 60th House District race.
The endorsement was made by NFIB/Virginia SAFE (Save America's Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
"James Edmunds clearly understands the challenges facing Virginia's job creators," said Nicole Riley, state director of NFIB/Virginia. "Our members believe Delegate Edmunds will continue to take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps our small businesses grow and create jobs."
NFIB/Virginia's agenda in the 2014 legislative session will include tax reform, improvements to Virginia's workers' compensation system and the final phase-out of accelerated sales-tax payments.
"During the past four years while I have been in elected office, I have consistently worked to promote business of all sizes in the 60th District. This endorsement verifies that my efforts have not gone unnoticed," stated Delegate James Edmunds. "Small businesses are the backbone of any community and I will continue to defend them as long as I an in office."
The NFIB/Virginia SAFE Trust's endorsement is critical to a candidate's campaign. 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 has pledged it will activate its grassroots network on behalf of the campaign. NFIB's political support is based on the candidates' positions and records on small business issues.
