Howard endorsed by independent business PAC
Greg Howard, the Republican candidate for state representative from the 43rd District (Stonington and North Stonington), has announced he has been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business Connecticut PAC.
“Small businesses are the crux of our local economy and the pandemic has put an undue strain on most of them, especially our restaurants and salons,” Howard said in announcing the endorsement. “If elected, I will fight hard to reduce the tax burden on small businesses and introduce legislation that will help small businesses rather than punish them with unaffordable mandates and red tape that make it unduly difficult to start and run a new business.”
He added, “Thank you to the NFIB for the honor of this great endorsement. In a time when we need to be fighting for small businesses, I appreciate that NFIB understands who will fight for them.”
“NFIB is the leading small-business association in the nation with thousands of members in Connecticut representing a cross-section of the state’s economy. Thank you for standing with NFIB on the issues important to small business,” said Elizabeth Parks and Wendy Traub of NFIB.
