SANTA BARBARA, CA —The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is announcing its endorsement of Justin Fareed in his bid for election in California’s 24th District.
“As a small business owner himself, Justin keenly understands the needs facing today’s small business owners,” explains Molly Gimmel, NAWBO National Board Chair. “He will work hard to ensure that our women and small business owners continue to be heard in Congress and ensure that they see expanded opportunities for funding and additional resources necessary for successful scaling and growth. We are proud to endorse his campaign for Congress.”
“Part of being a champion for women’s rights is fighting for women entrepreneurs and small business owners. It is important that our children grow up seeing examples of successful women business owners in our community, and for over 40 years the National Association of Women Business Owners has worked to open doors by transforming public policy. I am honored to have NAWBO’s support, and in Congress I’ll fight for policies that encourage small business growth, regulatory reform, and a fair, competitive procurement process for federal contracts to be performed by women-owned businesses,” says Justin Fareed.
“NAWBO Central Coast California believes that strong representation in Washington is the key to keep Main Street businesses voices heard and make effective policy that directly affects the day to day operations of women business owners,” says Amy Grace Collins, Director of Advocacy for the NAWBO Central Coast California chapter.
NAWBO National considers candidates for endorsement after they have won their primary. The selection of candidates is based solely on their history of business ownership or their voting record demonstrating their consistent support of business owners. Additional endorsements will be made by NAWBO prior to the November 6th general election.
