“Rep. Elise Stefanik is a proven supporter of New York’s small businesses,”said Ashley Ranslow, NFIB New York State Director. “She has consistently voted with small businesses, earning a 100% NFIB voting record for this term, and was recently named an NFIB Guardian of Small Business. Rep. Stefanik has a strong understanding of the issues impacting small businesses and has advocated against legislation that would add burdensome regulations and increase taxes on small businesses. She has promoted pro-growth policies that strengthened the small business economy and has continued to be a pro-small business Member of Congress. We are proud to endorse her for re-election today.”

Whether it’s leading the charge to repeal Hochul’s devastating farm overtime rule, recovering millions in benefits for local small businesses, expanding resources for workforce training, or enhancing tourism along our northern border, our small business community knows I have fought for them and always will. I look forward to continue working directly with NY-21’s small businesses as we stop Hochul’s war on rural America and protect Upstate New York jobs, family farms, and businesses.”
