Media Teleconference: NFIB to Unveil 2014 “Vote for Main Street” Political Program

Small Business Leaders to Discuss the Need for Washington to Restore Trust with Main Street Businesses, Workers and Communities

National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB):

 

WHAT:

From costly energy regulations and higher taxes to Obamacare and reckless spending, Main Street is fed up with Washington’s habit of rewarding DC special interests, large corporations and unions at the expense of small businesses back home.
 

America’s Main Street enterprises and small businesses have had enough with Washington politics. The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) is launching its “Vote for Main Street” 2014 political program to educate small business owners and the millions of workers they employ on the need to stand up, speak out and vote in the 2014 elections.

 
Main Street American businesses are the backbone of the U.S. economy and historically create two-thirds of all net new jobs. This year, the NFIB will be recruiting and advocating on behalf of candidates who will fight for the local workers and communities that depend on them.
 
The campaign includes a nationwide voter registration effort and an integrated paid media program to support “Small Business Certified” candidates who are champions of small businesses. Additionally, the NFIB plans to monitor candidates and officials who claim to support small business, but have done otherwise with their votes and actions.
 
The NFIB will also outline specific federal policies needed to give Main Street the opportunity to grow their businesses and create jobs, while highlighting candidates whose experience and priorities align with this goal.
 

WHO:

Dan Danner, President and CEO of NFIB
Claudia Kovach, Vice President of City Machine Technologies
Zach Hoffman, President and Co-Owner of Wiley Office Furniture Co.
