WESTBOROUGH, Mass. — The National Federation of Independent Business announced its endorsement today of Marty Lamb (R-Holliston) in his race for the 8th Middlesex District Representative seat, which serves Westborough and Southborough.
"Marty Lamb is the candidate in this race with the best grasp on small-business issues and he promises to fight for changes that will help our state's job creators — small businesses — grow jobs," Bill Vernon, NFIB-Massachusetts state director, said Tuesday in a news release.
Lamb, a small-business owner himself, said in accepting the endorsement he has promised to "promote and protect small businesses and their right to own, operate and grow."
"Small businesses are not looking for a hand out from government," Lamb said in the release. "They want certainty and government to get off their backs."
Lamb is running for the seat currently held by Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston).
