Kyrsten Sinema receives a 100% rating from the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce as a champion of women's economic priorities and is endorsed by the Women's Chamber for Arizona's 9th Congressional District.
WASHINGTON, DC, August 22, 2014 (Newswire.com) - "I am proud to announce the endorsement of the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce for Kyrsten Sinema in the race for Arizona 9th Congressional District," stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. "Kyrsten Sinema is a proven, independent and effective leader who consistently works for job creation and the economic security for women, families, veterans and seniors."
"Kyrsten Sinema is a champion of women's economic priorities, receiving a one-hundred percent rating from the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce. She is committed to 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.
Rep. Sinema has been clear about her commitments stating, "Small businesses, especially those owned by women and minorities, are key to promoting economic growth in our communities." And, "I support small business growth. Growing our economy means providing everyone - women and minorities especially - with the resources and opportunities needed to succeed." Rep. Sinema consistently stands up to protect the economic security of her constituents, "I have stood up to Congress and even President Obama to prevent cuts to Social Security and the implementation of Chained CPI because the budget should not be balanced on the backs of seniors."
"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 nearly thirty percent of all firms in Arizona employing more than 147,000 workers," continues Dorfman.
"Rep. Kyrsten Sinema is a consistent, independent, effective advocate for her district and the economic prosperity of all American families. We are proud to endorse her candidacy."
