Eastpoint attorney Kristy Branch Banks is among the first round of small business owners across the state who will make up the “Small Business for Scott” Coalition for Gov. Rick Scott’s bid for reelection.

Earlier this month, the campaign announced the formation of the coalition as the National Federation of Independent Businesses publicly announced their endorsement of Scott’s reelection. Jerry Pierce, chairman of the NFIB Leadership Council is serving as statewide chair of the coalition.

 “I've seen first-hand Governor Scott's strong commitment to free enterprise and getting our economy back on track,” said Pierce. “Having such a vocal advocate of the small business community in the Governor’s Office has no doubt improved the business climate for Florida’s job creators.”

The coalition membership includes 105 businesses from all over Florida. The coalition is represented in every county of the state
