Rep. Jason Grill receives support from small business owners (NFIB)

NFIB Endorses Jason Grill for reelection to Missouri House

Candidate’s Strong Stance on Small Business Issues Earns Nod

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., July 11, 2008 – The National Federation of Independent Business, Missouri’s leading small business association, today announced its endorsement of Jason Grill in his bid for re-election to the Missouri House. Rep. Grill secured the group’s nod because of his strong record on small business issues critical to
Main Street.

“NFIB is proud to endorse Jason Grill because he has a clear understanding of the needs of small business owners. He has worked to protect their rights as well as fight to keep unnecessary regulations from adding to the burden of running a successful business,” said Brad Jones, NFIB/Missouri state director.

“Rep. Grill knows that small business is the engine that drives Missouri’s economy, and he has worked to provide the tools small business owners need,” Jones said.

NFIB’s endorsement of Grill brings with it the powerful support of thousands of small business owners from across the state. He has maintained a strong and consistent voting record in support of small business owners.

“Our members know and appreciate the importance of an ally in the legislature,” Jones said. “Just as we know Jason has worked hard for the interests and rights of small business, NFIB members will work hard to send him back to Jefferson City.”

Today’s endorsement comes from the Missouri SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, NFIB’s political action committee. The National Federation of Independent Business bases its political support on candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
