AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today received the endorsement of the Business and Commerce PAC (BACPAC), the political arm of the Texas Association of Business (TAB), for re-election.
“The business community has a true champion in Gov. Rick Perry,” said TAB President and BACPAC spokesman Bill Hammond. “Texas is fortunate to have the most pro-business governor in the nation. Gov. Perry has helped lead our state to being home to the most robust business climate in America. Gov. Perry's unparalleled record of accomplishment on business issues made the decision an easy one.”
Representing companies from the largest multi-national corporations to small businesses in nearly every community of our state, TAB works to improve the Texas business climate and to help make our state's economy the strongest in the world. For more than 85 years, TAB has been on the front lines of the legislative, regulatory, and judicial battlefields, fighting for every issue that impacts business to ensure that employers’ opinions are heard.
“Hardworking people all over our state know that governments never really create jobs, businesses do, when they are free of excessive government influence,” said Gov. Perry. “Members of TAB understand this essential principle and I am honored to receive their vote of confidence in my candidacy. We share the understanding that government is at its best when it’s cultivating an environment that makes it easier for employers to thrive and then gets out of the way. The business-friendly climate we have created together, combined with the efforts of hardworking Texans, have moved Texas to the forefront of the nation’s economy and have us poised to remain there well into the future.”
