Will you vote for jobs?
That’s what the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce are asking members as the midterm elections approach. In a week, voters will cast their ballots in one of the most important elections in recent history.
After the gamechanger of the 2016 elections, it makes a notable difference to our nation that now – two years later – the entire House of Representatives, one-third of the Senate, 36 governorships, and a large amount of state and local offices are up for potential change. Whoever wins will have the power to set the agenda for the next two (or more) years.
As the U.S. Chamber puts it, “This means that the state of our economy, as well as many of the issues that accelerate or undermine growth, is also on the ballot.” The future of our economic growth hangs on this election, which is why the U.S. Chamber (and the Kearney Chamber) is “urging business leaders, employees, and anyone who wants to see our economy continue on this upward trajectory to vote for the candidates who support policies for greater growth in this high-stakes election. If the pro-growth agenda is halted or stymied, we could be looking at a very different picture next year and beyond.”
For a quick explanation on why it’s important for businesses and our economy – both local and nationwide – to vote, check out the message here from Thomas J. Donohue, the President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
