NFIB National Federation Of Independent Business endorses McConkey in his reelection to the House of Delegates in legislative district 33.
Annapolis – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), representing thousands of small businesses in Maryland, endorsed 22 candidates for the Maryland House of Delegates including Delegate Tony McConkey (R-Severna Park). Delegate McConkey is running for his fourth term to the General Assembly representing legislative district 33.
“This is a great crop of legislators who have perfect voting records on the issues that affect small business owners in Maryland,” said NFIB Regional Public Policy Director Tim Goodrich. “Maryland is a difficult state for small business owners and it’s important for our members to have advocates in the Legislature whose appreciation for small business owners is matched by solid voting records.”
NFIB asks its members to identify the key issues in every state and then tracks lawmakers’ votes. This session 22 members of the House of Delegates earned perfect 100 percent scores.
“We can’t ask for stronger allies than that,” said Goodrich. “These are highly principled, highly consistent lawmakers and we’re proud to endorse them. Our goal is to have a majority of members in the Maryland Legislature who understand the importance of small business and who are willing to make the tough votes when it counts.”
“I am very proud of earning the National Federation of Independent Business endorsement in my reelection and I am deeply honored to be the only candidate worthy of this recommendation and recognition not only in District 33 but in all of Anne Arundel County”.
