CORNING- Congressional Candidate Tom Reed today announced the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation for organizations of every size. Supporting a pro-business mindset and working diligently to represent the interests of businesses small and large, the Chamber recognizes lawmakers that fight for sustained economic growth and help create jobs.
"We have run our small family business for over 40 years,” said Conley & Son Excavating owner, Donna Conley of Seneca County. “The biggest priority for our country and the state of New York is jobs. Tom travels around the district conducting town halls, and is always available to listen to the people. He is a true champion for small business and job growth."
"My wife, son and I have owned and operated a small business in New York for years," said Vic Tarana of Chautauqua County. "Tom has always been there to address issues at a federal and state level and we appreciate his willingness to protect jobs and stand-up for a better business environment."
"One of the biggest issues facing our country today is the lagging economy,” said Richard Rynone, President of Rynone Manufacturing Corp in Tioga County. "As a business owner, I see this everyday and Tom Reed has always supported small business owners to help them create jobs in our community. I want to congratulate Tom on receiving an endorsement by the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, recognizing his efforts towards helping small business and consistently representing those ideals in Congress.”
"I've known Tom Reed for years, and I know he is committed to easing the burden for small businesses in the state," said Century 21 Turner Brokers Real Estate President, Tom Turner of Chautauqua County. "He understands the challenges we face, and is always working to promote economic growth in the Southern Tier."
“I’m extremely pleased to have earned the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce,” remarked Tom Reed. “Business encourages economic growth, and we need to continue investing in the private sector to bring jobs back to the Southern Tier and Finger Lakes.”
