Small business endorses Jim Gotto in House District 60

Jim GottoNFIB/Tennessee supports pro-small business candidate in Nov. 2 general election

NASHVILLE, Tenn., September 2, 2010 – The National Federation of Independent Business, Tennessee’s leading small business association, has endorsed Jim Gotto in the race for the open seat in the 60th House District.

The endorsement was made by NFIB/Tennessee SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members. The general election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 2. House District 60 includes part of Davidson County, including Donelson, Hermitage and Antioch.

“Jim Gotto is a strong supporter of free enterprise and the clear choice for small business in House District 60,” said Jim Brown, state director of NFIB/Tennessee. “NFIB members support Jim Gotto’s fiscally responsible approach as a metro councilman in Nashville and his emphasis on less red tape and policies that promote job creation.”

Gotto said, “I appreciate the support of NFIB, the Voice of Small Business. NFIB’s membership believes in less government, which is a big part of my track record as a conservative, pro-business councilman. Government needs to be out of the way of entrepreneurs so they can create jobs. I will continue to support our small, family-owned businesses who are the heart and soul of Tennessee’s economy.”

NFIB’s endorsement is critical to the Gotto campaign. 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 has pledged it will activate its grassroots network on behalf of the Gotto campaign. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
