National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) Endorses Jay Webber For Congress

For Immediate Release
Morristown, NJ - Standing in the shop of the Shade Tree Garage in Morristown, NFIB joined local business owner John O'Connor in endorsing Jay Webber's candidacy for Congress.

NFIB is the most prominent association representing small businesses in New Jersey and across the country. 
"NFIB is the voice of small business owners and I'm proud to have it in my corner," said Webber. "Small businesses like the Shade Tree Garage and their owners like John O'Connor are the engines that drive growth in our economy.  I've led the pro-growth movement in New Jersey fighting to relax regulations that weigh small businesses down and reduce their tax burden to allow them to thrive. Folks like John can count on me to do the same for them in Washington.
"America is seeing tremendous economic success this year and now is the time to embrace that momentum.  Together, we can pursue new, positive opportunities for our country," continued Webber.
"Unfortunately, my opponent has her head buried in the sand, working backwards from the partisan narrative that America is broken and every ill from which it suffers is the fault of Republicans," said Webber. "Her hyper-partisan reflex of opposing anything a member of the other party does would only contribute to the dysfunction we see in Washington. Well, when a customer comes to John O’Connor, he doesn’t ask her whether she’s a Democrat or Republican, John just wants to serve the customer as best he can.  The same should hold true in Washington -- small businesses need leaders in Congress who will work with both sides of the aisle to keep America and New Jersey moving forward.  That’s what I will do.”

“Jay Webber has a proven record of standing up for New Jersey small businesses,” said NFIB’s New Jersey State Director Laurie Ehlbeck. “We are confident that he will continue to be a champion for small businesses and stand up for issues they care about, like protecting small business tax cuts and reducing burdensome regulations. On behalf of our members in New Jersey’s 11th Congressional District, we are proud to endorse Jay Webber for election to the United States House of Representatives.”

NFIB represents several thousand small businesses in New Jersey. According to SBA, 1.8 million people are employed by small businesses in New Jersey and 99.6% of NJ businesses are small.

NFIB-NJ's SAFE (Save America's Free Enterprise) Trust has endorsed each of Jay Webber's re-election candidacies for state Assembly (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017) and gave him "the Guardian of Small Business" award in 2015 and 2017.
