NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 6, 2012 – Dr. Steve Dickerson, the Republican candidate for the State Senate in District 20, has announced that his campaign has been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business.

“I am extremely proud to announce today that my campaign has received the endorsement of the NFIB, Dickerson stated. The NFIB is vital to ensuring that government does not hinder job growth for small business across Tennessee and the nation.”
The endorsement was made by NFIB/Tennessee SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members. The NFIB only endorses candidates that they feel will jump start the economy and job growth for the state. The general election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 6.

“I look forward to working with the NFIB and other pro-business groups to ensure that we get the most Tennesseans back to work as possible.” Dickerson continued, “Small business growth is vital in creating an economy in our state that is envied across the nation. We have done a good job at creating a pro-business environment in our state, but there is still work to be done.”

“Steve Dickerson will be a very strong supporter of free enterprise in Nashville and will work to protect small businesses in Senate District 20,” said Jim Brown, state director of NFIB/Tennessee. “Steve Dickerson is the clear choice for small business in this important race because he will emphasize reducing the burdens of government on hard-working entrepreneurs.”
Steve Dickerson is a practicing physician and founding partner of Anesthesia Services Associates. Dickerson attended the University of the South in Sewanee graduating with a B.A. in History. He then received his medical degree at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest University. Steve Dickerson has been married to his wife Katrina for 19 years and they have three sons, Reid, Evan, and Bennett.
