The Ohio chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business, the nation's leading small business advocacy group, has announced its support of Attorney General candidate Betty Montgomery.
NFIB is Ohio's largest small business association, representing more than 36,000 members throughout the state. The nationwide organization has 600,000 members and has worked to promote business- friendly policies for more than 60 years. It was ranked the most influential business organization in "Washington’s Power 25".
NFIB State Director Ty Pine said that Montgomery's record made her the clear choice in this race. "Throughout her years of public service, Betty Montgomery has been a strong, consistent voice for a responsible pro-business agenda. She understands that small business growth is essential to the economic success of our state, and supports policies that will encourage that growth," he said.
Pine also said that the organization plans to throw its grassroots weight behind the Montgomery campaign. "Our organization helps elect those candidates we believe will serve small business owners well. Through voter registration drives, voter education and get-out-the-vote efforts, we work to put effective, capable candidates like Betty Montgomery in office," he explained.
Montgomery was pleased to learn that she had received this significant show of support. "NFIB promotes policies that will improve our business climate, and help return our state to greatness. As the daughter of small business owners, I am proud to have this endorsement, and I hope to work in alliance with this organization as Ohio’s next Attorney General."
Betty Montgomery is the Republican nominee for Ohio Attorney General. She has spent more than three decades serving the public and has earned a reputation as a fighter and a reformer. Her campaign platform includes fighting for tougher sentences for child sex predators, increasing enforcement of consumer protection laws and enhancing a statewide approach to prosecuting public corruption.
