CT Small and Independent Businesses Endorse Toni Boucher for State Senate

October 10, 2022

NFIB cites Boucher’s commitment “to the needs of Main Street small businesses and their employees.”

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Connecticut PAC has endorsed Toni Boucher for the 26th District’s State Senate seat, which includes Wilton, Westport, Weston, Redding and parts of Ridgefield, New Canaan, Darien and Stamford.

“Thank you for standing with NFIB on the issues important to small business,” said NFIB Chair Wendy Traub and NFIB Senior State Director Christopher Carlozzi. “The NFIB CT PAC believes that you will be committed to the needs of thousands of Main Street small businesses and their employees in Connecticut when you are elected to serve in Hartford.”

“Small and independent businesses are vital to Connecticut’s economy, and to receive this vote of confidence from our country’s leading non-partisan small business association is an honor,” Boucher said. “Thousands of Connecticut small business owners are members of NFIB, and I pledge to work with Democrats and Republicans to make Connecticut more affordable and small business friendly. Creating a positive tax environment where businesses can grow and families can prosper should be a bipartisan effort. Helping Connecticut’s small businesses thrive is among my top priorities.”

Boucher served as 26th District State Senator from 2008 to 2019 and as a State Representative from 1997 to 2008. In the legislature, her extensive experience in the business world helped her to work collaboratively with Democrats and Republicans on state government fiscal issues. She served on the front line of bipartisan efforts to balance the state’s budget while holding the line on taxes, reducing government spending, saving businesses and growing jobs.

Boucher, who holds an MBA from UCONN Business School, is the founder and former owner of a small business and a former member of corporate management for two Fortune 50 firms. She co-founded and served on the Board of Directors of a marketing design agency in San Diego, California, which specializes in clients working in biogenetic, aerospace and leading edge computer applications. She is a recipient of the Southwest Area (CT) Commerce and Industry Association’s Community Leader Award.

Boucher, who has been endorsed by the Connecticut Independent Party, encouraged voters of all parties as well as unaffiliated voters to visit www.ToniBoucher.com today for more information about her campaign and to learn about volunteer opportunities. Election Day is Nov. 8.
