Veteran political strategist and organizer David Tille of Concord has landed a key role in the expansion of the pro-small business Job Creators Network.
UnionLeader.com has learned Tille has been named the new Northeast regional director of the free enterprise group founded last fall by Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus and former presidential candidate Herman Cain. JCN is officially a “C” corporation for tax purposes.
Tille has served on the congressional staffs of Republican former U.S. Reps. Frank Guinta and Jeb Bradley. He was state political director of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign in 2007 and part of 2008, and worked on Cain’s presidential exploratory committee in the most recent campaign cycle.
JCN says its role is to “counteract what big government proponents and their big labor friends have long been doing for years -- educating their workforces as to the politics that benefit their own special interests, which are regularly counter to free enterprise, private sector prosperity.”
The group says it helps business owners communicate what it views as the benefits of free enterprise to their employees.
JCN says small businesses make up more than 96 percent of employers in New Hampshire, employing nearly 51 percent of the private sector workforce.
“That’s an even larger share of the labor force than the nation as a whole,” Tille said. “That’s why it’s so important that our small businesses know they can count on Job Creators Network to help them communicate free enterprise values to their employees in simple, kitchen-table terms.
“Even though the Granite State has no income or sales tax, plenty of challenges remain on the state and federal levels that call for vigilance from our employers,” he said.
Tille said he hopes to help preserve “the small business climate we are fortunate to have now, and build upon this solid base by helping our business leaders educate our state’s hard working employees on how bad policies harm good people.”
