Small business endorses Steve Dickerson in Senate District 20

NFIB/Tennessee supports pro-small business candidate

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 6, 2012 – The National Federation of Independent Business, Tennessee’s leading small business association, has endorsed Steve Dickerson in the race for the 20th Senate 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. 6.

“Steve Dickerson will be a very strong supporter of free enterprise in Nashville and will work to protect small businesses in Senate District 20,” said Jim Brown, state director of NFIB/Tennessee. “Steve Dickerson is the clear choice for small business in this important race because he will emphasize reducing the burdens of government on hard-working entrepreneurs.”

Dickerson said, “I greatly appreciate NFIB’s support for my campaign. Small business owners continue to tell me it is vitally important to keep government out of their way so they grow their businesses, their payroll and Tennessee’s economy. Tennessee is a great place to do business, but we have much more to do to make it a better place for our state’s struggling entrepreneurs.”

NFIB’s endorsement is critical to the Dickerson 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 Dickerson campaign. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
