Velazquez joins a growing list of candidates supported by NAWBO National.
Washington, D.C. —The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is announcing its endorsement of U.S. Representative Nydia Velázquez in her bid for re-election in New York’s 7th District.
“Representative Velázquez has been vocal on behalf of our nation’s small busineses for more than a decade,” explains Molly Gimmel, NAWBO National Board Chair. “As the first Latina Chairwoman of the House Small Business Committee and in her current role as Ranking Member of the House Small Business Committee, she embodies a true representative of the women’s business community. Her efforts to ensure capital lands in the hands of business owners and her numerous legislative proposals on trade, technology, and federal contracting underscore why NAWBO National supports Congresswoman Velázquez as New York’s 7th District Representative.”
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.
