The National Federation of Independent Business,
California’s and the nation’s leading small business association, today
announced the early endorsement for the re-election of Assemblymember Catharine
Baker to Assembly District 16..
“Assemblymember Baker has been a staunch ally of small
business since her election in 2014,” said Tom
Scott, NFIB/CA state director. “As a business attorney, Catharine knows
first-hand the challenges our members face and has advocated business friendly
legislation in Sacramento. We are pleased to endorse her for re-election to the
State Assembly in 2016.”
NFIB has more than 21,000 dues-paying members in California
representing a cross-section of the state’s economy. The endorsement comes from NFIB’s SAFE (Save
America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the organization’s political action
committee, and is based on positions regarding key small-business issues
including health care, taxes, labor 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.
