Costello Wins Support Of NFIB In Congressional Bid

CostelloRepublican PA-6 nominee and Chester County Commissioner Ryan Costello won the support of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).

“NFIB is a leading voice on behalf of the nation’s small businesses, which are one of the major drivers of our economic and job growth,” Costello stated. “I am honored to have the support of an organization that advocates for and champions small business. If elected, I will work to implement policies that promote job creation, reduce barriers to economic growth, and cut bureaucratic red tape that saps the resources of small businesses and inhibit their ability to expand and hire new workers.”

“When he was a Chester County Commissioner Ryan balanced budgets, cut government spending, and reduced the size of county government all while making investments in open space,” said NFIB Executive State Director Kevin Shivers. “It’s policies like that which make small businesses feel more confident about expanding and hiring. Government must live within its means and keeps tax rates low. We need that same mindset in Washington, D.C. where an out of control federal budget deficit has small businesses nervous about their economic future and potential for growth. That’s why we support Ryan Costello for Congress.”

The NFIB was founded in 1943 and represents 15,000 businesses in Pennsylvania. The endorsement was made by the organization’s Save America’s Free Enterprise (SAFE) Trust.

Costello is running to represent Pennsylvania’s 6th congressional district, which comprises parts of Berks, Chester, Lebanon and Montgomery Counties. The Democratic nominee is physician Manan Trivedi.
