The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) today announced its endorsement of David Rutigliano in the race to represent Trumbull's 123rd district.
"David Rutigliano impressed us with his commitment making Connecticut more competitive by cutting the size of government, reducing taxes and getting the regulatory bureaucracies out of the way," said NFIB State Director Andrew Markowski. "He's got strong experience in the private sector and he clearly understands how small businesses work and what we need to improve the state's economic climate."
Rutigliano, a Restaurateur who owns and operates the SBC Restaurant group, which includes Southport Brewing Company and the Sitting Duck Tavern in Stratford, is seeking to replace T.R. Rowe in the CT State House of Representatives. Rowe is running for Judge of Probate.
Rutigliano’s endorsement comes from NFIB's Save America's Free Enterprise Trust (SAFE), the association's political action committee, and is based on positions regarding key small-business issues including health care, taxes, and labor and regulatory issues.
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. NFIB will encourage its members in Connecticut to help turn out the small-business vote for David Rutigliano this coming Election Day.
