State Representative Rob Sampson announced that the Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA), the largest and most representative business organization in the state, has endorsed his candidacy for reelection. CBIA’s is among the many notable endorsements Sampson has received from the state’s leading business organizations, including support from the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) and the Connecticut Association of Realtors.
The CBIA is Connecticut’s largest and broadest-based business membership organization, with more than 10,000 member companies. It is the leading voice of business and industry at the State Capitol and before state administrative agencies.
In response to CBIA’s endorsement, Sampson said, “As jobs and the economy are paramount on everyone’s mind this election, it is an honor to be the candidate for Wolcott & Southington the CBIA can rely on. It’s an honor to have the support of this valuable organization to ensure that the concerns of business owners large and small are heard in Hartford.”
Earlier this month, Sampson was also endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business Association, whose mission is to promote and protect the rights of small and independent business owners to own operate, and grow their businesses.
The Connecticut Association of REALTORS® has also endorsed Sampson, who is a Realtor, based on his record and understanding of issues facing Realtor’s themselves as well as homeownership in Connecticut.
Sampson serves on the General Assembly’s Appropriations and Judiciary Committees and is the ranking Republican member of the Insurance & Real Estate Committee.
