“Your record of support on pro-business issues earned this endorsement”
Anchorage, AK – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business federation, recently endorsed the re-election of Alaska Congressman Don Young, citing his pro-business record and commitment to advancing economic growth.
“It is the Chamber’s goal to help elect a pro-business majority in Congress and work diligently in support of the interests of businesses to advance legislation that encourages economic growth, job creation, and a less intrusive federal government, “ wrote U.S Chamber of Commerce CEO Thomas Donohue. “Your record of support on pro-business issues earned this endorsement… We believe your re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives will help produce sustained economic growth, help create jobs, and get our economy back on track.”
Young, a tireless advocate of Alaska’s business community and perennial recipient of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s “Spirit of Enterprise Award”, shared the following statement in response to the endorsement:
“I take great pride in working to advance Alaska’s business community,” said Congressman Don Young. “Vital to the health and well-being of our economy, Alaskan small businesses account for more than 50% of our state’s private workforce, create new opportunities for our residents, and develop new innovations for our future. For these reasons, I have consistently pushed back against the growing stranglehold of the federal government and tirelessly fought for policies that allow Alaskans from across all our sectors succeed. I am honored to receive the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and remain committed to working on behalf of Alaska’s diverse business community.”
Congressman Don Young is seeking his 23rd term in the House of Representatives. He is the longest serving House Republican and the third longest serving member of the House. Young is the Chairman of the Indian, Insular and Alaska Native Affairs Subcommittee, and senior member of both the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.
