NASHVILLE, August 21, 2018 — The NFIB Tennessee Political Action Committee has endorsed State Representative Ryan Williams (R-Cookeville) in the House District 42 race. Williams is one of eighty-eight statewide candidates to receive support from the PAC which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
“Representative Williams has clearly demonstrated he is a strong supporter of free enterprise and will stand with small business in the 111th General Assembly,” NFIB State Director Jim Brown said. “He is committed to promoting a positive business environment in Tennessee and truly understands the critical role small business plays in a strong economy.”
“I am honored to receive this endorsement from Tennessee’s leading small business association,” said Representative Williams. “Our small businesses are the backbone of our local economy, and the fact that Tennessee was recently named one of the national leaders in small business friendliness drives home their importance as it relates to our overall economic success. I will continue to support initiatives that allow these organizations to thrive because this will lead to additional job creation and enable more of our families to achieve their version of the American Dream.”
The NFIB Tennessee PAC’s endorsement is important to the Williams campaign. Small-business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members and acquaintances to go to the polls. The PAC’s support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
Ryan Williams serves as Chairman of the House Republican Caucus. He also serves as a member of the House Finance, Ways & Means Committee and Subcommittee, as well as the House Government Operations, House Health, and the House Calendar & Rules Committees.
