WATCH: Small Business Endorses Ivey for Governor

Date: September 18, 2018

The NFIB Alabama Political Action Committee has endorsed Kay Ivey for governor. NFIB is the nation’s leading small-business association. NFIB State Director Rosemary Elebash announced the endorsement today at a news conference at Southern Distributor/Auto Electric and Carburetor Co., an NFIB member business in Birmingham.

 

The NFIB Alabama PAC’s endorsement is based on the candidate’s record and position on small-business issues.

“Kay Ivey is the clear choice for Alabama’s small businesses,” Elebash said.

“Kay Ivey is a strong leader who understands the challenges facing Alabama’s job creators,” Elebash said. “She opposes higher taxes and burdensome rules and regulations that would make it harder for small businesses to succeed and create jobs. This spring, she signed legislation prohibiting cities from requiring companies to purchase a municipal business license before driving through their jurisdictions for work purposes.

“Since taking office a little over a year ago, Governor Ivey has announced more than 15,500 new jobs and more than $8 billion in capital investment, creating exciting new opportunities for all kinds of small businesses,” Elebash said. “Under her leadership, our pro-business climate has received national recognition from the likes of the influential Business Facilities magazine, and Alabama’s employment rate is the highest it’s ever been.”  
 
Governor Ivey said, “As Governor, I have made it my job to create a strong environment for job creation. That’s why I’ve worked closely with the NFIB and the state Legislature, signing the largest tax cut in a decade and eliminating unnecessary regulations that make it more difficult and more expensive to do business. Being endorsed for Governor by Alabama’s small businesses is truly an honor. I am grateful for their trust, support and everything they do to keep Alabama working!” 

Today’s endorsement puts the considerable grassroots support of the state’s small businesses behind the governor’s campaign. Small-business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for recruiting friends, family members and acquaintances to vote. NFIB will encourage its Alabama members to help turn out the powerful small-business voting bloc on Election Day.
