SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 21, 2020—The political action committee for California’s leading small-business association today announced its endorsement of state Assemblyman Randy Voepel for re-election to his 71st District seat.

“In this time of economic turmoil, having effective, dependable champions of small business in the Legislature is a real plus for the Main Street enterprises of California that will lead our state to its economic recovery, and Assemblyman Randy Voepel is such a leader,” said John Kabateck, California state director for NFIB. “This Navy veteran is truly a Top Gun for small business.”

The endorsement of Voepel was made by the NFIB CA PAC and based on six votes taken in the first half of the 2019-2020 session. A minimum of 70% was needed for endorsement consideration. Voepel had 83 percent.
