Jau­mann re­ceives

Small Busi­ness

As­so­ci­a­tion en­dorse­ment

The Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of In­de­pen­dent Busi­ness has backed An­so­nia Al­der­man Joe Jau­mann as the Repub­li­can and In­de­pen­dent can­di­date for state rep­re­sen­ta­tive in the 104th Dis­trict.

“As a small-busi­ness owner and al­der­men in An­so­nia, I have worked hard to recharge our lo­cal econ­omy,” said Jau­mann. “The de­ci­sions made by Gov­er­nor Dan Mal­loy and the ma­jor­ity have got­ten in our way. But, as we do in An­so­nia and in the Val­ley we don’t back down from a chal­lenge. I am proud of the work Team Cass­seti has done and what we have done here lo­cally is ex­actly the ap­proach we need to bring to Hart­ford.”

NFIB is the lead­ing small-busi­ness as­so­ci­a­tion in the na­tion with thou­sands of mem­bers in Con­necti­cut rep­re­sent­ing a cross­sec­tion of the state’s econ­omy.
