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 Pam Byrnes in the race for Michigan’s 7th Congressional District,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “Pam Byrnes has a remarkable track record of getting things done for her community. And she understand that now is the time to leverage her experience, relationships and conviction to support the needs of Michigan families in the U.S. Congress.”
“Pam Byrnes understands Michigan 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 one-hundred percent rating from the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce,” continues Dorfman. ”Pam Byrnes will bring accountability to Washington, eliminate government waste and boost job growth by rebuilding our transportation and infrastructure and growing advanced manufacturing and biosciences industries,” adds Dorfman.
“Byrnes 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.
“Pam Byrnes has a proven track record as an effective leader that includes being elected by a unanimous, bipartisan vote to serve as Speaker Pro Tempore of the Michigan House of Representatives. She has unique experience as a family law attorney, serving as Washtenaw County’s first female road commissioner and as the chair of the Michigan House of Representatives Committee on Transportation,” adds Dorfman. “She has championed small business-friendly legislation, aggressively worked to eliminate waste and perks for government officials and believes we need a balanced budget that reflects our values, eliminates corporate tax loopholes and eases the tax burden on middle class families.”
“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 250,000 Michigan firms employing 245,000 workers,” continues Dorfman.
“Pam Byrnes will get things done in Washington that will directly support strong Michigan family economics. We are proud to endorse her candidacy.”
