The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business organization, today enthusiastically endorsed Congressman Dan Donovan for reelection. Mr. Donovan also laid out his top priorities for the next year that will help jumpstart the economy.
The endorsement was announced at Staten Island’s Piece A Cake bakery on New Dorp Avenue where Congressman Donovan was joined by Geoffrey O’Hara, the Vice President of Regional Affairs and Advocacy for the U.S. Chamber.
“Dan Donovan is a proven and trusted fighter for small business,” said Geoffrey O’Hara, VP of Regional Affairs and Advocacy for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “He not only understands the challenges businesses are facing in this sluggish economy, but he recognizes the importance of a thriving private sector to grow the middle class. Whether it’s his fight to cut taxes, reduce energy costs or repeal harmful and costly regulations, the business community can know they have a real advocate in Dan Donovan. We are proud to once again endorse him as the clear choice to represent the 11th congressional district.”
“Small business is truly the backbone of our economy,” said Congressman Donovan. “Businesses like Piece A Cake and others across the district are contributing to our quality of life and the fabric of our community. But they are also struggling in a stagnant economy with over-regulation and high taxes. Every day I’m fighting for policies that will help new businesses to be created and our current ones to thrive and grow. I’m honored the U.S. Chamber has recognized that in their endorsement of my reelection.”
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
