As a business owner in House District 76, I am endorsing the candidacy of Republican Mark Andre.

It is paramount that legislators have an understanding of the business climate. Andre understands because he is a business owner.

I have always said that our legislators are not ill-willed but ill-informed when it comes to business matters. Every year, bills that affect business are passed by well-intended legislators who don’t fully understand their consequences.

I encourage anyone within District 76 who has a concern for the economic future of this state to vote for Andre.
