ROANOKE, VA– The National Federation of Independent Business, Virginia’s leading small-business association, has endorsed Senator Ralph Smith’s re-election in the 19th Senate District race.
The endorsement was made by NFIB/Virginia SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members. NFIB has 6,000 small-business members throughout the Commonwealth.
“As an entrepreneur who has created hundreds of jobs, Senator Smith understands the challenges facing Virginia’s small and family businesses. Senator Smith has fought to keep taxes low and fought unnecessary regulations on business. He is the clear choice for voters in Senate District 19 who are concerned about job creation,” said Nicole Riley, state director of NFIB/Virginia. “Senator Smith has also stood up for Virginia’s job creators time and again on important issues such as tax relief, health-care reform and the right of employees to cast secret ballots in union organization elections.”
“We trust Senator Smith will continue to take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps our small businesses grow and puts the Commonwealth back on the pathway to success,” said Riley.
