Judy Chu receives a 100% rating, endorsement from the Women's Chamber as a champion of women's economic priorities.
Washington, DC, October 26, 2016 (Newswire.com) - “I am proud to announce the endorsement of the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce (http://www.uswcc.org) for Judy Chu in the race for California’s 27th Congressional District,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “Judy Chu has a remarkable track record of getting things done for her community. And she understands that must continue to leverage her experience, relationships and conviction to support the needs of California families in the U.S. Congress.”
“Judy Chu understands California needs a robust platform for the creation of quality jobs to support and rebuild our middle class. She is also a champion of women’s economic priorities, receiving a one-hundred percent rating from the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce,” continues Dorfman. ”Judy Chu will bring accountability to Washington, eliminate government waste and boost job growth by rebuilding our transportation and infrastructure and growing advanced manufacturing and biosciences industries,” adds Dorfman.
“Chu 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, tax policies that support a vibrant middle class and access to capital and federal contracts for women-owned firms,” continues Dorfman.
“Judy Chu has a proven track record as an effective leader that includes supporting, cosponsoring and sponsoring numerous pieces of key legislation including the Paycheck Fairness Act and Pay Workers a Living Wage Act,” adds Dorfman. “And, as a member of the House Small Business Committee, she has championed small business-friendly legislation. As the Ranking Member of the Small Business Subcommittee on Access to Capital, Chu has worked to increase capital access for women and minorities by passing the CREED Act into law to make permanent the SBA’s 504 refinancing program, unleashing billions of dollars in capital for small business owners looking to refinance commercial debts.”
“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 the primary source of income for their family. Women own more than one million California businesses employing more than one million workers,” continues Dorfman.
“Judy Chu has and will continue to work to get things done in Washington that will directly support strong California family economics. We are proud to endorse her candidacy.”
