Washington, DC, September 13, 2016 (Newswire.com) - “I am proud to announce the endorsement of the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce (http://www.uswcc.org) for Corry Westbrook for Florida’s 8th U.S. Congressional District,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “Corry Westbrook has the knowledge and the determination to get things done for her community. And she is ready to leverage her experience and conviction to support the needs of Florida families in the U.S. Congress.”
“Corry Westbrook will use her extensive policy and legislative knowledge of Congress to the benefit of all residents of Florida’s 8th district. She is also a champion of women’s economic priorities, receiving a Strong Rating from the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce,” continues Dorfman.” Corry has first-hand experience writing and moving legislation through the complicated maze that is the U.S. Congress and she helped pass legislation that directly benefited Florida. Equally important, Corry also knows how to block harmful legislation,” adds Dorfman.
“Westbrook supports a positive economic environment for women workers and business owners, American job creation, fair pay, a fair minimum-wage, family-friendly workplaces, access to affordable/quality healthcare and birth control, tax policies that support a vibrant middle class and access to capital and federal contracts for women-owned firms,” continues Dorfman.
“Growing the number of strong women leaders in Congress is critical to assuring that women’s economic priorities are advanced,” adds Dorfman. “American prosperity is directly linked to the economic success of women. Seventy percent of women work and seventy-two percent of mothers work. A record forty percent of all households with children under eighteen include mothers who are either the sole or primary source of income for their family. Women own more than 807,000 Florida businesses employing more than 480,000 workers,” continues Dorfman.
“Corry Westbrook will get things done in Washington that will directly support strong Florida family economics. The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce is proud to endorse her candidacy.”
