“Across New York State, small businesses, and the local economies they support are on the brink,” said Greg Biryla, NFIB’s New York State Director. “The pandemic has literally forced storefronts to close in every community and every neighborhood without warning and has left local entrepreneurs with little ability to plan their business’s future.
“The Empire State has proven a difficult place to start or grow a business for years, and that simply can’t continue, added Biryla. “To recover our economy and our way of life, lawmakers in both houses from both parties must prioritize real solutions to help struggling small businesses. The state legislative incumbents and candidates endorsed by NFIB’s NY PAC have demonstrated their commitment to the small businesses in their communities and will be champions for an economic recovery that starts on the Main Streets across our state.”
NFIB is the state and the nation’s leading small-business association with thousands of members in New York representing nearly every conceivable type of employer or industry in the state’s economy. The endorsements come from NFIB’s NY PAC, the association’s state political action committee, and are based on positions regarding key small-business issues including taxes, health care, workplace mandates, economic development, and regulatory issues.
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 will encourage its members to help turn out the #SmallBizVoter for NFIB NY PAC-endorsed candidates in the 2020 General Election. NFIB and its NY PAC Committee will continue to monitor and evaluate key races across the state and may announce additional candidate endorsements at a future point.
