Washington, DC, September 13, 2016 (Newswire.com) - “Once again, I am proud to announce the endorsement of the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce (http://www.uswcc.org) for Carol Shea-Porter in the race for New Hampshire’s 1st U.S. Congressional District,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “Carol Shea-Porter is a trusted and proven leader for families, business, seniors and women.”
“Former Rep. Carol Shea-Porter is a champion of women’s economic priorities, receiving a one-hundred percent rating from the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce,” continues Dorfman. “Former Rep. Shea-Porter focuses on policies and actions that will support the economic vitality and security of her community,” adds Dorfman.
“Carol supports a positive economic environment for women workers and business owners, American job creation, fair pay, a fair minimum-wage, family-friendly workplaces, access to affordable/quality healthcare and birth control, policies that support a vibrant middle class and access to capital and federal contracts for women-owned firms,” continues Dorfman.
“Carol Shea-Porter believes in investing in people to create good jobs and a strong economy. And, she believes in fairness,” adds Dorfman. “Carol has supported investments in infrastructure and voted to stop shipping jobs overseas. She works consistently to strengthen American small business – including women-owned firms, and to protect and grow “Make it in America” manufacturing.”
“Growing the number of strong women leaders in Congress is critical to assuring that women’s economic priorities are advanced,” adds Dorfman. “American prosperity is directly linked to the economic success of women. Seventy percent of women work and seventy-two percent of mothers work. A record forty percent of all households with children under eighteen include mothers who are either the sole, or primary, source of income for their family. Women own 38,000 New Hampshire firms employing more than 36,000 workers,” continues Dorfman.
“Carol Shea-Porter has been a cosponsor of the Paycheck Fairness Act, the Fair Minimum Wage Act and the FAMILY Act,” adds Dorfman. “She has proven that she will always work to support economic growth for women, stabilize Social Security funding to protect our seniors and will work to assure that small business gain access to the capital they need to grow and fuel American job growth. The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce is proud to endorse Rep. Shea-Porter for re-election to Congress.”
