Assemblyman Karl Brabenec (R,C,I-Deerpark) announced today that he has been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). NFIB bases its endorsements on candidate questionnaires and 2015-16 voting records.
NFIB is an association built on 325,000 small and independent businesses owners united by one clear mission: to promote and protect their right to own, operate and grow their business.
“I was very pleased to receive the endorsement of the NFIB,” said Brabenec. “I have always been a strong advocate for small businesses here in New York. They are the backbone of our economy and we must protect them and support them the best we can. Creating a more business-friendly environment in New York has always been a top priority for me, we have been losing working-class families and small businesses to neighboring states for years now, and this is unacceptable.”
“With the 2015-16 Legislative Session behind us, it is vitally important that small businesses be well represented in Albany,” said Mike Durant, NFIB/NY State Director. “I am pleased to extend the National Federation of Independent Business endorsement to Karl Brabenec. He has consistently shown a commitment to strongly stand up for small employers.”
