NFIB Endorses Dave LaRock
RICHMOND, October 14, 2013 -- The National Federation of Independent Business, Virginia’s leading small-business association, has endorsed Dave LaRock in the 33rd House District race.
The endorsement was made by NFIB/Virginia SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members, and is based on the candidate’s background and experience and positions on small-business issues.
“Dave LaRock clearly understands the challenges facing Virginia’s job creators,” said Nicole Riley, state director of NFIB/Virginia. “Our members believe Dave LaRock will take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps small businesses grow and create jobs.”
NFIB/Virginia’s agenda in the 2014 legislative session will include tax reform, improvements to Virginia’s workers’ compensation system and a phase-out of accelerated sales-tax payments.
Dave LaRock responded by saying, “I am honored to have the endorsement of the NFIB. My wife and I have worked for over 30 years growing our small-business; we know the challenges faced by the job-creators in our area. I will work hard to hold the line on taxes and spending, cut unnecessary regulation, and fight for small-business-friendly legislation. I plan to use my small-business experience to work for more efficient spending of taxpayer money in Richmond.”
The NFIB/Virginia SAFE Trust’s endorsement is critical to a candidate’s campaign. 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 has pledged it will activate its grassroots network on behalf of the campaign. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
