U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce Endorses Carol Shea-Porter in NH-01

ROCHESTER, NH– The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce this week endorsed Carol Shea-Porter for New Hampshire’s First District, citing her support for women in the workplace and woman-owned small businesses.

“I worked in my mother’s small business and I understand the challenges small business owners and their families face, so I‘ve introduced and supported legislation that helps them launch and grow. I have also advocated for them for six years on the Make it in America Working Group, so I am grateful for this recognition and endorsement by the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce,” said Shea-Porter.

The Women's Chamber rated Shea-Porter as a 100% champion of women's economic priorities for her actions to "support the economic vitality and security of her community,” according to Women’s Chamber CEO Margot Dorfman.

Dorfman added, "Carol Shea-Porter is a cosponsor of the Paycheck Fairness Act, the Fair Minimum Wage Act and the FAMILY Act. She will always work to support and stabilize Social Security funding to protect our seniors and will work to assure that small business gain access to the capital they need to grow and fuel American job growth. The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce is proud to endorse Rep. Shea-Porter for re-election to Congress.”

When making its endorsement decision, the Women’s Chamber also considered Shea-Porter's commitment to strengthening small businesses, her active support for the “Make it in America” manufacturing initiative, and her work to keep jobs in New Hampshire instead of shipping them overseas.
