California Small Business Association Endorses Kevin Jeffries for Supervisor (1st District)
(Riverside, CA) - The California Small Business Association, the state’s largest small business trade association representing 203,000 members, has announced their endorsement of Kevin Jeffries for Riverside County Supervisor – First District.
"As a long time small business owner, Kevin Jeffries understands how to create jobs and work within a budget,” said Betty Jo Toccoli, President of the California Small Business Association. “His commitment to the future of small businesses is deserving of the support from our organization.”
Jeffries said he was honored by this endorsement from the only statewide organization specifically representing small businesses - the driving force behind the majority of all new job creation.
“As a business owner, former Chamber of Commerce Director, and Economic Development Committee Chairman, I have constantly worked at the state and local level to reduce burdensome regulations and excessive taxes and fees that make it difficult for businesses to grow and create new jobs in Riverside County,” said Jeffries.
The California Small Business Association represents over 203,000 small business owners. CSBA is a grassroots, non-partisan, advocacy organization founded in 1980 by the California small business delegates to the White House Conference on Small Business.
“This is a huge endorsement for the Jeffries campaign,” said Stacy Nicola, Assistant Campaign Manager for Jeffries. “It speaks volumes about his commitment to helping rebuild our local economy and bringing badly needed jobs to Riverside County.”
Jeffries is also honored to be endorsed by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, National Tax Limitation Committee and the Riverside County Deputy District Attorneys Association.
The Jeffries campaign will be holding the Grand Opening of its Southwestern Campaign Headquarters on Saturday March 3rd, with a ribbon cutting at 11am. The address is 31861 Mission Trail, Lake Elsinore (I-15, Diamond Drive off ramp, near the stadium).
