Washington, DC, September 15, 2016 (Newswire.com) - “I am proud to announce the endorsement of the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce (http://www.uswcc.org) for Kathleen “Katie” McGinty in the race for Pennsylvania U.S. Senate,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “McGinty has a track record of getting things done for her community. And she understands that now is the time to leverage her experience, relationships and conviction to support the needs of Pennsylvania families in the U.S. Senate.”
“Katie McGinty understands Pennsylvania needs a robust platform for the creation of quality jobs to support and rebuild our middle class. She is also a champion of women’s economic priorities, receiving a 100% percent rating from the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce,” continues Dorfman.” McGinty will bring accountability to Washington, and work to rebuild the promise of the American Dream for working families like her own,” adds Dorfman.
“McGinty supports a positive economic environment for workers and business owners, American job creation, fair pay, a fair minimum-wage, family-friendly workplaces, access to affordable/quality healthcare, tax policies that support a vibrant middle class and access to capital and federal contracts for women-owned firms,” continues Dorfman.
“Katie McGinty’s extensive leadership includes serving as: Legislative Assistant to Senator Al Gore, Deputy Assistant to President Bill Clinton; Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality; and head of Pennsylvania‘s Department of Environmental Protection,” adds Dorfman. “Katie is well prepared to promote economic growth and women’s economic priorities; she is committed to leveling the playing field for small businesses and workers by closing the unfair tax loopholes that incentivize sending jobs overseas and put small businesses at a disadvantage.”
“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 the primary source of income for their family. Women own 304,000 Pennsylvania firms employing 320,000 workers,” continues Dorfman.
“Katie McGinty will get things done in Washington that will directly support strong Pennsylvania family economics. We are proud to endorse her candidacy.”
