SBAM Endorses Rick Snyder
August 18, 2010
The Small Business Association of Michigan has endorsed Rick Snyder for Governor.
“Michigan small business owners believe that Rick Snyder’s experience as a leader in innovation and job creation gives him unique and valuable insight into what it will take to help Michigan excel in entrepreneur-centered economic development,” said Rob Fowler, President and CEO of the Small Business Association of Michigan. “Michigan needs jobs, and jobs overwhelmingly come from economic gardening: the nurturing of successful, home-grown entrepreneurs. Rick Snyder is far and away the best choice for entrepreneurs, small business owners and anyone who works for a small business.”
Fowler said the organization decided to endorse Snyder because its members were impressed by his carefully-thought-out plans to eliminate the Michigan Business Tax, make government more efficient and reform Michigan’s overly-burdensome regulatory structure. Fowler also cited Snyder’s role in turning Ann Arbor SPARK into one of the most successful economic development programs in the country.
