Small business group endorses candidates
The National Federation of Independent Business, Alabama’s leading small business association, has endorsed a bipartisan slate of candidates in 80 state legislative races, including locally:
incumbent state Sens. Trip Pittman of Montrose; Rusty Glover of Semmes; and Ben Brooks of Mobile; and
incumbent state Reps. Harry Shiver (Bay Minette); Alan Baker (Brewton); Joe Faust (Fairhope); Steve McMillan* (Gulf Shores); Randy Davis (Daphne); Victor Gaston (Mobile); Jamie Ison (Mobile); Chad Fincher (Semmes); Jim Barton (Mobile); and Spencer Collier (Irvington).
“Our members support candidates who support small business, regardless of party affiliation,” said Rosemary Elebash, state director of NFIB/Alabama. “Small business is the backbone of Alabama’s economy, and it’s critically important to have a Legislature that supports free enterprise.”
