Schimminger receives business endorsements


Schimminger Schimminger Assemblyman Robin Schimminger, D-C-I, Kenmore, has recently received the backing of two business organizations — Unshackle Upstate, a bipartisan coalition of more than 80 business and trade organizations, and the National Federation of Independent Business, a small-business association.

Schimminger has been endorsed by Unshackle Upstate after receiving a perfect score from the organization’s Voting Scorecard, which rated members of both houses of the state Legislature according to their voting records related to measures addressing the economy and initiatives that will lead to jobs and the revitalization of the state.

The National Federation of Independent Business has also endorsed Schimminger and awarded him the 2012 Guardian of Small Business Award, an honor that he has been presented with in the past. NFIB’s political support is based on each candidate’s position and record on small-business issues.
