COLUMBUS — The political action committee of the National Federation of Independent Business/Ohio, the state’s leading small business association representing 25,000 entrepreneurs, is proud to announce its endorsement of Rep. Mike Henne who is seeking re-election to Ohio’s 40th House District seat. The district is home to 202 dues paying members of NFIB/Ohio.
Henne is a small-business owner and has been a member of NFIB for over 10 years. As a fellow small-business owner, Rep. Henne’s shared perspective with Ohio’s entrepreneurs allows him to understand the issues NFIB/Ohio advocates for and against.
During his time in the Ohio House of Representatives, he has been an advocate for of cutting taxes and lowering the cost of doing business in Ohio. Those ideas are embraced by the membership as shown by the results of NFIB/Ohio’s surveying of small-business owners throughout the state.
“Representative Henne has been approved through NFIB/Ohio’s member-driven process that thoroughly reviews candidates’ records, stated positions and understanding of small-business issues before an endorsement is issued,” said Roger R. Geiger, vice-president and executive director of NFIB/Ohio. “As a member of NFIB serving in the Ohio legislature with a 100 percent voting record on our issues, he certainly understands the issues important to Ohio’s economic engine, small-business owners. We look forward to continuing working with him in the future.”
“I am honored by this endorsement. NFIB represents the small businesses, the ones who drive our economy and put people to work,” said Representative Henne.
For more than 70 years, the National Federation of Independent Business has been the Voice of Small Business, taking the message from Main Street to the halls of Congress and all 50 state legislatures. NFIB annually surveys its members on state and federal issues vital to their survival as America’s economic engine and biggest creator of jobs.
