Association of Builders and Contractors Endorse Ovide for Governor
Cite Ovide's "priority focus on our economy and job creation"
Manchester, NH - The New Hampshire/Vermont Chapter of the Association of Builders and Contractors today announced their endorsement of Ovide Lamontagne for Governor. The Association represents over 250 companies and nearly 15,000 employees working in or in support of commercial and industrial construction.
"Ovide's positions on reducing business taxes, health care reform and his priority focus on our economy and job creation are important to Associated Builders and Contractors," said Mark Holden, President of the Associated Builders and Contractors, NH/VT Chapter. "Ovide knows our industry and has demonstrated he is not only interested in but passionate about our pro-free enterprise principals. We know a Governor Lamontagne will fight to reduce regulations and will work to reform the culture in Concord to treat New Hampshire businesses as a partner, not an adversary."
Ovide has been recognized as one of the Best Lawyers in America in the field in commercial and construction law each of the last five years. Before his law career, Ovide's first job out of college was with S&O Construction, a small construction firm he founded with a friend doing home remodels, deck building and other small construction jobs. Ovide worked in construction for three years to supplement his salary as a teacher.
"I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Associated Builders and Contractors," said Lamontagne. "I know this industry well and recognize the important role the hardworking men and women in the construction field will have in revitalizing our economy. I look forward to working with them to do just that in the years ahead."
The New Hampshire chapter of the National Federation of Independent Businesses also recently endorsed Lamontagne.
