Susan Davis receives a strong rating from the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce as a champion of women's economic priorities and is endorsed by the Women's Chamber for California's 23rd Congressional District.
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 Susan Davis in the race for California’s 23rd Congressional District,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “Susan Davis is a problem solver who listens to the needs of her constituents and stands up in Congress to build consensus and get things done.”
“Rep. Davis has helped to get our economy moving again balancing fiscal responsibility with thoughtful job creation activities,” adds Dorfman. “Davis believes we should strive for an economy that rewards those who work hard and play by the rules.”
“Rep. Davis is also a champion of women’s economic priorities,” states Dorfman. “Davis 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, policies that support a vibrant middle class and access to capital and federal contracts for women-owned firms,” continues Dorfman.
“Susan Davis sponsored and cosponsored several significant pieces of legislation that have supported women, small business, families and veterans; the Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation to raise the minimum wage, Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act and important legislation to increase small business lending and unbundle procurement contracts at the Department of Defense,” adds Dorfman. “Rep. Davis personal commitment to family leave policies is unparalleled as she not only promotes legislation to support family friendly work environments, but also practices these principles in her own Congressional office.”
“Supporting 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 one million California businesses employing more than one million workers,” continues Dorfman.
“We need leaders like Susan Davis in Washington to solve problems, build consensus and protect our economy. We are proud to endorse her candidacy.”
