Voice for Small Business

WESTPORT -- The National Federation of Independent Business has endorsed Patrizia Zucaro in her candidacy for election to Connecticut’s 143rd House district, which includes parts of Norwalk, Westport, and Wilton. Zucaro is the endorsed candidate of both the Republican Party and the Independent Party.
NFIB is Connecticut’s and the country’s leading small-business association with thousands of members in Connecticut representing a cross-section of the state's economy. For 75 years, NFIB has been advocating on behalf of America’s small and independent business owners, both in Washington, D.C., and in all 50 state capitals. A nonprofit, nonpartisan, and member-driven organization, NFIB has been dedicated exclusively to small and independent business owners, and remains so today.
“The NFIB Connecticut PAC is pleased to inform you that we have endorsed your candidacy for the Connecticut General Assembly in this November’s election,” wrote Wendy Traub, Chair, NFIB CT PAC and Elizabeth Parks, Senior Grassroots Manager, NFIB CT, in their endorsement letter dated September 21, 2020. “The NFIB CT PAC believes that you will be committed to the needs of thousands of Main Street small businesses and their employees in Connecticut when you are elected to serve in Hartford. Thank you for standing with NFIB on the issues important to small business.”
“I’m grateful for NFIB’s recognition of my commitment to fighting for policies that will make Connecticut friendlier to business, and to helping our small businesses recover and grow,” said Zucaro, commenting on the endorsement. “Not only have I managed my own law practice, but I have also served many small businesses and I understand the challenges they face in Connecticut. Before COVID-19, they had to cope with inconsistent tax policies, burdensome regulations, and ever-increasing mandates. But now, in the pandemic’s wake, many small business owners have either furloughed or laid off valued employees, closed temporarily, or closed altogether, and have lost their only source of income. Small businesses in our district need a representative who understands them and will fight for them. One of my top priorities is helping them reduce their structural costs and eliminating burdensome regulations and mandates that make it harder for them to operate. I want the people of Wilton, Norwalk, and Westport to know that if elected, I will not allow small businesses to be ignored.”
Patrizia Zucaro is a lifelong resident of Fairfield County and a Westport native. The proud daughter of parents who came to the United States from Italy and taught her the value of hard work, she graduated from Staples High School and UConn. After nearly 10 years in real estate, she attended law school at Pace University while working full-time and commuting. She became a licensed attorney in both Connecticut and New York in 2012. Since then, she has served small businesses and individuals, both through her own law practice and as general counsel for two small companies. Patrizia is running for office because she feels it’s her responsibility to use her professional experience to give back to the communities where she lives and works.
