Keep the Iowa Standard Going!
David Young, Republican candidate for Iowa’s Third Congressional District, has been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business.
The press release from NFIB can be found here. Young is a two-time recipient of NFIB’s Guardian of Small Business Award, and has also been previously endorsed by the Business Industry Political Action Committee (BIPAC) Action Fund which represents smaller and larger employers.
In their press release, NFIB’s Iowa State Director Matt Everson said, “As a former Congressman for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District from 2015-2019, David Young knows the challenges small businesses in our state are facing. He achieved a strong voting record during his time in the U.S. House of Representatives and was instrumental in helping pass important small business legislation, such as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which granted significant tax relief for small businesses. On behalf of small businesses in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District, I am proud to endorse David Young today for election to the U.S. House of Representatives.”
Sharon Sussin, the NFIB National Political Director, added, “David Young was a strong supporter of small businesses during his time in Congress. He has a deep understanding of the issues that small businesses in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District are concerned about, and we are confident he will continue to be a champion for small businesses in Iowa and across the country in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business,” said Young. “The backbone of so many of our communities are small businesses. I will continue to make supporting them and their workers a priority by ensuring their taxes are low and excessive and burdensome regulations are kept in check to give them the freedom to run and expand their businesses and hire more workers and serve their customers.”
David Young was elected to serve the Third Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2014 and reelected in 2016. He served on the influential Committee of Appropriations. Prior to his service in Congress, Young served Iowans as U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley’s Chief of Staff from 2006-2013. A graduate of Johnston High School and Drake University, Young is a seventh-generation Iowan and resides in Van Meter.
