DES MOINES, September 5, 2012 The National Federation of Independent Business, Iowa's leading small business association, today announced its endorsement of Jane Jech in her bid for election to the Iowa Senate. Mrs. Jech secured the group's endorsement because of her strong stance on small business issues critical to Main Street.
"NFIB is proud to endorse Jane Jech because she has a clear understanding of the needs of small business owners. She understands the importance of protecting their rights as well as fighting to keep unnecessary regulations from adding to the burden of running a successful business," said Kristin Kunert, NFIB/Iowa State Director.
"Jane Jech knows that small business is the engine that drives Iowa's economy, and she will work to provide the tools small business owners need," Kunert said.
NFIB's endorsement of Jane Jech brings with it the powerful support of thousands of small business owners from across the state. "Our members know and appreciate the importance of an ally in the legislature," Kunert said. "Just as we know Jane Jech will work hard for the interests and rights of small business, NFIB members will work hard to send her to Des Moines."
Today's endorsement comes from the Iowa SAFE (Save America's Free Enterprise) Trust, NFIB's political action committee. The National Federation of Independent Business bases its political support on candidates' positions and records on small business issues.
