NFIB Endorses Andrew Goodell for Assembly

The “National Federation of Independent Business” recently endorsed Andrew Goodell for election in the 150th Assembly district.

“Andrew Goodell is the right candidate for small business in this race and the candidate who has demonstrated the strongest support for the small business agenda,” said NFIB/New York State Director Mike Elmendorf. “As a small business owner, Andrew understands the devastating impact of excessive taxes and New York’s crushing cost of doing business.”

Elmendorf described Goodell as a reliable partner on the issues that matter most to small businesses.

“Andrew Goodell will say ‘no’ to costly new mandates on small business and will support common sense lawsuit reform. He will also join NFIB’s push for  property tax cuts and state spending cap to lead the way to a more affordable New York in which small business owners can do what they do best—run their businesses and create jobs. We look forward to working with Andrew in the State Assembly on behalf of New York’s small business community,” Elmendorf said.

Goodell said that he was proud to have earned NFIB’s endorsement and that he will work hard to protect small businesses in the coming legislative session.

“I am extremely pleased and honored to receive the support of the NFIB, the voice of small businesses in New York state. This endorsement reflects my deep commitment to local businesses. Small business is the backbone of our economy and a critical source of private sector jobs for our communities. In Albany, I will aggressively seek to cut state spending and taxes, eliminate burdensome fees and regulations, and make New York state more business friendly, and I have recommended several specific proposals to accomplish that mission. We need to help our local businesses grow and add jobs, not kill them with excessive taxes and fees. I am grateful that the NFIB has endorsed me as their candidate in Chautauqua County for the 150th Assembly District,” said Goodell.

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’s political support is based on the candidate’s position and record on small-business issues. Andrew Goodell’s endorsement comes from the NFIB/New York SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the political action committee for NFIB/New York’s membership. The endorsement puts the considerable grassroots support of the state’s small businesses behind the Goodell campaign.
