Sununu For US Senate - Senator Sununu Discusses Plan For The Economy With Small Business Leaders

Receives U.S. Chamber of Commerce Endorsement

Manchester – Senator John Sununu met with New Hampshire small business leaders at a roundtable today to discuss the current economic situation and his plan to help small business. Following the roundtable, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement of Senator Sununu.

“Today we met with Senator Sununu and discussed the impact of the economic crisis for New Hampshire small businesses,” said Ray Pinard, small business owner and U.S. Chamber of Commerce Board Member. “I am confident in Senator Sununu’s decisive leadership in these trying times - he will get the job done and keep taxes low, stop reckless Washington spending, lower energy costs for New Hampshire families and businesses and make health care more accessible and affordable for small businesses.”

Representative of the United States Chamber of Commerce also attended the roundtable and announced their support for Senator Sununu at a press conference following the event.

“In these tough economic times we need John Sununu, a leader in Washington who will keep taxes low- the last thing we need in an economic crisis is someone like Jeanne Shaheen who will raise taxes on small businesses,” said Geoff O’Hara, Regional Director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “This election offers a stark choice between John Sununu who supports policies that will create jobs and spur the economy, and Jeanne Shaheen who supports the tax and spend policies of the past. Every year in Congress, John has voted to keep taxes low, has stood up against pork filled bills including the Bridge to Nowhere, wrote and passed the Internet Access Tax Ban, and has a forward thinking plan to turn around the economy, bring down energy costs and make health care more affordable.”

Senator Sununu discussed his leadership on the economy and expressed his gratitude for the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“I am honored to have the backing of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce,” said Senator John Sununu. “In this challenging economic environment I have stood up since my first year in the Senate and called for more reform, more oversight and more regulations for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the insurance industry and credit markets . I will continue to provide effective leadership for New Hampshire small businesses by keeping taxes low, standing up against wasteful spending, working to lower energy prices and making health care more affordable.”
