Nationally Recognized Organization for Job Creation endorses Lackey for Assembly
Palmdale, CA— Former Highway Patrol Sergeant and Assembly Candidate, Tom Lackey has earned the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
A nationally recognized and highly respected non-profit organization, the NFIB has been providing a voice for small businesses and their owners for over 75 years. As an association dedicated to advocating for its members, the NFIB supports candidates who truly understand the economic impacts provided by small business, while having the experience to shape policies that enhance entrepreneurship in their region.
When asked about their endorsement, John Kabateck, Executive Director of NFIB/CA said, “Political interests have jeopardized the stability of California’s small businesses and thwarted the desire for investment from out-of-state entrepreneurs. Tom has a proven track record that has enhanced opportunities for job creation in the region, and we are confident that his leadership will provide the needed change desired by local business owners.”
Lackey’s record of dedication to a community in which he is proud to call home dates back almost three decades. He is a three-term Palmdale City Councilman who has twice served as Mayor Pro Tem, a former special education teacher, and retired Sergeant for the California Highway Patrol. His service to the community has been demonstrated through action, where he has enhanced the level of public education, cared for the region’s most vulnerable, and made local communities a safer place to live.
“I could not be prouder to have the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business,” said Lackey. “I know this community deserves better from their leaders, and I am confident that my experience will provide our community with leadership that enhances the level of learning and earning on every level. As the next Assemblyman for the 36th Assembly District, I’ll never forget where I came from or for whom I’m working.”
Tom Lackey is the city delegate to the Citizens Advisory Committee for California State Prison – Los Angeles County, the city representative on the Antelope Valley Transit Authority Board, an appointee to the Antelope Valley Crime Task Force, and was most recently appointed to the Metropolitan Transportation Board for L.A. County by Supervisor Antonovich.
Tom Lackey and his wife Theresa, live in Palmdale with their two adopted children, Justin and Jani.
