Washington, DC, September 13, 2016 (Newswire.com) - “I am proud to announce the endorsement of the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce (http://www.uswcc.org) for Michelle Lujan Grisham in the race for New Mexico’s 1st U.S. Congressional District,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “Michelle Lujan Grisham has a track record of getting things done for her community. And she recognizes the need to continue to leverage her experience, relationships and conviction to support the New Mexico families in the U.S. Congress.”
“Michelle Lujan Grisham understands New Mexico needs a robust platform for the creation of quality jobs to support and rebuild our economy. 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.
“Grisham 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.
“Grisham’s top priority in Congress is ensuring positive movement in our economy and putting New Mexicans to work. Michelle knows that small businesses and entrepreneurs are the backbone of our economy and will lead the way to recovery, and by supporting business growth and fostering innovative entrepreneurial enterprises is key to developing a viable economy, an economy with responsible corporate citizens that provides good paying jobs in the near term and lays the foundation for a prosperous future,” adds Dorfman. “She has championed legislation to level the playing field – a core requirement to ensure Women’s Economic Priorities.”
“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 59,000 New Mexico firms employing 54,000 workers,” continues Dorfman.
“Michelle Lujan Grisham will get things done in Washington that will directly support strong New Mexico family economics. The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce is proud to endorse her candidacy.”
