PRESS RELEASE: Bill Allen earns coveted NFIB endorsement in Northland state house race

PRESS RELEASE – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Missouri PAC has endorsed Bill Allen in the 17th District House Race. The group’s national organization is commonly known as the “voice of small business” and is known for their advocacy for independent businesses in all fifty states.

“Our members support the candidates who support Missouri’s small businesses, and Bill has shown us that he understands the challenges facing the state job creators,” NFIB State Director Brad Jones said. “Our members believe Bill will do everything possible to help local businesses overcome challenges such as soaring inflation and burdensome taxes and create an environment where small businesses can grow and create jobs.”

Dr. Bill Allen is a retired Naval Commander of the U.S. Navy and holds a Ph.D. in Organization and Management. His business background includes working at Cerner and filling the role of Center Director with the Jobs Corps. Beyond his career, Allen has dedicated his life to serving local at-risk youth and remaining an active volunteer in the Northland with his wife, Marta.

“I am honored to be endorsed by this important organization and look forward to pursuing our shared goals of supporting local businesses and building a state economy that rewards hard workers,” said Allen. “The Northland has weathered some tough times—from COVID to rapid inflation—but there are practical things we can do in state government to increase job growth and avoid rising costs of living for our community. That’s why it’s vital that we send a local voice that actually lives in our district to represent our needs.”

The NFIB Missouri PAC’s endorsement is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
