The state office of the National Federation of Independent Business, Georgia’s leading small business association, said today it has endorsed Mark Butler for labor commissioner.
The endorsement follows a special survey of NFIB/Georgia members, in which 98 percent of respondents said they supported Butler.
“Mark Butler recognizes the challenges Georgia’s entrepreneurs and small, family businesses face in records to labor issues,” said David Raynor, state director of NFIB/Georgia.
“As a member of the Georgia House of Representatives, he has earned a 100 percent voting record,” Raynor said. “Our members believe he will do everything he can to help secure the state’s unemployment trust fund and oppose card check, an initiative intended to help Big Labor push its way into small businesses and bully workers into signing union cards.”
Butler said, “I am honored and appreciate the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Businesses, the recognized voice of small businesses across the country. Like the NFIB, I understand the struggles of small business, having been a small business owner for the past 18 years. I know small business is the backbone of our economy, and understand the need to create a pro-business environment to grow jobs in Georgia.”
Small business owners and their employees vote in large numbers and recruit their friends and family members to support small business candidates, as well. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
