Washington, DC , August 25, 2014 (Newswire.com) - “I am proud to announce the endorsement of the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce (http://www.uswcc.org) for Emily Cain in the race for Maine’s 2nd Congressional District,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “Emily Cain’s commitment to education, jobs, small businesses and Maine families is at the core of her personal leadership objectives.”
“Emily Cain is in tune with the needs of Maine’s working families and will fight every day as their champion in Washington. She is also a champion of women’s economic priorities, receiving a one-hundred percent rating from the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce,” continues Dorfman. ”Emily Cain has strong governmental leadership experience, an unwavering commitment to community and a fire behind her desire to make a real difference for Mainers,” adds Dorfman.
“Cain 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.
“Emily Cain is the youngest women in Maine history to serve as the Democratic leader of the State House. And, after serving four terms in the State House, she is now serving in the Maine Senate,” adds Dorfman. “She is a committed advocate for the middle class focusing on access to education, job creation, support of small business access to capital and resources, family friendly work environments and affordable healthcare.”
“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 40,000 Maine firms employing more than 30,000 workers,” continues Dorfman.
“Emily Cain will be a tireless and effective leader for Maine. We are proud to endorse her candidacy.”
