State Representative Ken Goodman, House District 66 (Richmond and Montgomery Counties) has been endorsed by The North Carolina Chamber of Commerce. The organization recently announced its initial endorsements in select N.C. legislative races for the November general election. Goodman, of Rockingham, is running for re-election unopposed.
In its press release, the N.C. Chamber PAC described its mission as supporting state legislative candidates whose professional background and respective records on key business issues demonstrate a commitment to preserving and enhancing a positive climate for business and job creation in North Carolina.
“These candidates have demonstrated that they will be supportive of key initiatives that position North Carolina to be more competitive in the race for jobs and economic prosperity for all North Carolinians,” said Lew Ebert, president and CEO of the North Carolina Chamber and member of the North Carolina Chamber PAC Board. “As a result of significant legislation passed last year, businesses of all sizes that already employ millions of North Carolinians can look to expand and grow, spurring further business investments and job creation. However, there is still work to be done, and we know that we can count on a continued commitment to enhancing our state’s business climate from strong, jobs-minded legislators such as those endorsed by the Chamber PAC.”
While leaning toward the GOP side of the aisle, the N.C. Chamber PAC endorsements also reach across the aisle to tab three Democrats in the Senate and two Democrats in the N.C. House.
Rep. Goodman said he is pleased and honored to have received the endorsement and support of the N.C. Chamber in both 2010 and 2012.
