Small Businesses Endorse Jeff Frederick in Senate Race

Richmond, Virginia (September 27, 2011) – Two prominent small business groups announced their endorsements of former Delegate Jeff Frederick in the 36th district race for Virginia Senate. 

The National Federation of Independent Business, Virginia’s leading small-business association, made its endorsement by NFIB/Virginia SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members. NFIB has 6,000 small-business members throughout the Commonwealth.

“Jeff Frederick understands the challenges facing Virginia’s small, family businesses and is the clear choice in Senate District 36,” said Nicole Riley, state director of NFIB/Virginia.  “We believe Jeff will take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps our small businesses grow and create jobs and puts the Commonwealth back on the pathway to success,” she added.

In addition, the Virginia Small Business Partnership, an advocacy body for the Virginia small business, also announced its support for Frederick.

“We recognize your background as a successful small businessman and your record in fighting for small businesses during your time in the House of Delegates, and believe that you will be a leader in the Senate in improving the envionrment for small businesses to thrive, create jobs, and lead in the economic recovery here in the Commonwealth,” said Paul Miller, Chairman of the Virginia Small Business Partnership.

 ”Small business is the engine of Virginia’s economy and our state’s largest employer.  Unfortunately, job creation has not been the Virginia Senate’s top priority, but it needs to be,” said Frederick, a former Chairman of the Virginia Small Business Commission. “It’s time for the Senate to stop being the roadblock on moving Virginia forward, especially in attracting businesses, creating jobs, and growing the economy. For Virginia to prosper, our small businesses must prosper, yet too many Richmond politicians see small businesses as sources of government revenue, rather than creators of jobs,” he added.


NFIB is the nation’s leading small business association, with offices in Washington, D.C. and all 50 state capitals. Founded in 1943 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, NFIB gives small- and independent-business owners a voice in shaping the public policy issues that affect their business. NFIB’s powerful network of grassroots activists sends its views directly to state and federal lawmakers through our unique member-only ballot, thus playing a critical role in supporting America’s free enterprise system. NFIB’s mission is to promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses.

The Virginia Small Business Partnership was formed in 2010 as an advocacy body for Virginia small businesses and to form relationship between Virginia policymakers and small business owners.  It is the Partnership’s goal to advocate for policies that improve Virginia’s small business environment and help grow the economy.
