National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Endorse Camillo for State Rep

The NFIB endorsed Fred Camillo for State Representative, District 151

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Connecticut SAFE Trust (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Committee have endorsed Fred Camillo’s campaign for election to the Connecticut General Assembly in November.

“Your voting record over the last two legislative sessions on key issues important to small business indicated that you will continue to be committed to the needs of thousands of Main Street small businesses and their employees in Connecticut when you are re-elected to serve in Hartford,” said Wendy Traub, chair of NFIB Connecticut.

NFIB is Connecticut’s and the nation’s leading small business association, with offices in Washington, D.C. and all 50 state capitals. Founded in 1943 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, NFIB gives small and independent business owners a voice in shaping the public policy issues that affect their business. NFIB has a network of grassroots activists who send their views directly to state and federal lawmakers through a unique member-only ballot.

“As a former small business owner, I know how hard it is to compete, survive, and thrive in today’s modern economy,” Camillo said. “Once again, to receive the NFIB endorsement is something I am very proud of. Known as the ‘Voice of Small Business,’ NFIB keeps a close eye on what is happening in our state and when issues, bills, laws, and or proposals affect, or threaten to affect our small businessmen and women, NFIB is there on the front lines to take up the battle.”

Camillo said NFIB is with Connecticut’s working men and women, fighting every day so that people are encouraged, rather than discouraged to start their own businesses.

NFIB’s mission is to promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses. More information about NFIB is available online at”

“Thank you for standing with us on the issues important to small business, and best of luck in your campaign,” said Wendy Traub, chair of NFIB Connecticut.
