in Uncategorized by

The National Federation of Independent Business today announced its endorsement of Mike Hill for House District 2.

“Mike is a proven leader in the small-business community, and the best candidate to lead Northwest Florida in the Legislature,” said Bill Herrle, NFIB/Florida Executive Director. “I firmly believe that nobody will fight harder than Mike for the rights of small-business owners and free enterprise.”  

Hill has long been active in the small-business community in Florida, serving as a member of NFIB/Florida’s Leadership Council. In this role, a release states, Hill “has been the voice of small businesses across the state against burdensome regulations, government intrusion, and has worked to helped shine a light on issues that hinder business owners’ abilities to operate and grow their businesses.” 

“I’m proud to receive an endorsement from small business, a community about which I am truly passionate, and look forward to working with NFIB to continue to improve Florida’s business climate and stop government’s intrusions on our rights,” Hill said. 

The endorsement comes from the NFIB/Florida SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the political action committee for NFIB/Florida’s membership, and is based on candidates’ positions regarding key small-business issues including health care, taxes, and labor and regulatory issues.
