RICHARD TISEI ACCEPTS US CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ENDORSEMENT IN LYNN
(Lynnfield, MA) — Congressional candidate Richard Tisei accepted the endorsement of the United States Chamber of Commerce at Old North Foods in Lynn, Massachusetts. The Chamber of Commerce is the largest business association in the United States with 300,000 direct members, and 3 million through its various affiliates such as state and local chambers.
“As a small business owner, I am proud to accept the endorsement of the Chamber of Commerce,” said Tisei. “I understand that free enterprise system in America is what made this country so special. It is the reason we have such a high standard of living today. I look forward to working with the Chamber to support tax reform and address burdensome regulations that are killing jobs in Massachusetts and across the country. You’ll never hear me say small-business owners are extremists or have a radical agenda as our congressman did.”
“Through his work in the state senate and private sector, Richard Tisei has helped advance free enterprise and foster conditions that will allow small businesses to grow,” said Rob Engstrom, the U.S. Chamber’s senior vice president and national political director. “As the world’s largest business federation, we’re proud to endorse Richard and commend his efforts to create jobs through pro-business policies.”
During 2011, Tisei’s opponent, Congressman John Tierney, received a 28% voting record with the U.S. Chamber on key business issues.
The endorsement was made with two dozen small business leaders with remarks from Ralph Sevinor of Wayne Alarms, Erin Calvo-Bacci of Bacci Chocolate Design, and Arthur Bourque of Surveillance Specialties. Introductions were made by Tim Demakes, CEO of Old North Foods, which has been in business since 1914 and currently has over 350 employees, distributing over 100 different products.
