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 Lois Capps in the race for California’s 24th Congressional District,” stated Margot Dorfman, CEO. “Lois Capps is a proven, experienced and committed leader who supports her community’s interests, spurring economic vitality and protecting quality of life.”
“Lois Capps has a keen focus on the needs of her constituents and consistently acts to improve and protect business growth, job creation and the quality of life in her community. She is a champion of women’s economic priorities, receiving a one-hundred percent rating from the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce,” continues Dorfman.
“Capps 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.
Rep. Capps has made economic growth and job creation her top priorities in Congress. She supports government investment in high-tech research and development, transportation, clean energy, education and rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure. She is also committed to supporting small businesses by increasing access to capital and reducing unnecessary regulations.
“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 one million California businesses employing more than nearly one million workers,” continues Dorfman.
“Lois Capps is an experienced, positive contributor to Congressional leadership. She clearly works from the heart to use her power in Congress for the benefit of her community,” concludes Dorfman.
