JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jay Fant has officially been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business.

The endorsement comes from the NFIB/Florida SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the political action committee for NFIB/Florida’s membership, and is based on candidates’ positions regarding key small-business issues including healthcare, taxes, and labor and regulatory issues.

In a statement released yesterday, Bill Herrle, NFIB’s Florida Executive Director stated:

“Jay’s business experience in the district has given him an understanding of the issues facing Florida’s small business owners, and his focus on reducing taxes and regulations, enacting lawsuit reform, and eliminating the roadblocks hindering small business growth show that he’s committed to helping Florida’s job creators.

Jay is the best candidate in the district who is fully devoted to supporting small business in the Florida House, and we feel he can provide steady leadership to ensure that Florida maintains its pro-business climate.”

In addition to the NFIB’s endorsement, Fant has also been endorsed by 50 small business leaders from Jacksonville’s Westside.
