NASHUA – Today in Nashua, members of the New Hampshire Motor Transport Association officially endorsed Kelly for reelection to the US Senate because she’s led the fight against overreaching federal regulations that threaten New Hampshire’s trucking industry.  “I am honored by this endorsement, and so grateful to the NH Motor Transport Association for our many years of work together as we fight against overreaching federal regulations that threaten small businesses,” said Kelly. “I look forward to continuing our partnership and working for New Hampshire’s truckers and consumers.”  “We’ve always been grateful to work alongside Kelly as she leads the charge on issues that could impact the commercial motor carrier industry, and we are proud to endorse her today,” said Bob Sculley, President of the New Hampshire Motor Transport Association. “Kelly is a champion not only for truck owners and operators, but also for the New Hampshire residents and consumers who every day utilize goods and services delivered by truck. It is incredibly clear that Kelly is the strongest candidate to fight for us in the Senate.” Since arriving in the Senate, Kelly has been a staunch advocate for New Hampshire’s small business truckers. She’s been a leader on opposing a number of proposed federal rules that would burden small business truckers and owner-operators in particular, and has introduced legislation to delay these regulations from taking effect.  The NH Motor Transport Association represents 300 members of the state’s trucking industry.
