HANFORD – Today, the National Association of Home Builders announced their endorsement for U.S. Congressman David G. Valadao’s reelection campaign.

Ed Brady, Chairman of the National Association of Homebuilders stated, “Rep. Valadao has consistently demonstrated that he is a champion of housing and has pushed to advance policies that will put families in homes, create jobs and spur economic growth. Housing is important to local, state and national economies and accounts for about 15 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product. NAHB believes in this critical election year that it is important to elect pro-housing, pro-business candidates to Congress in order to ensure that the housing and economic recovery continues to move forward. We are proud to endorse Rep. Valadao for re-election because he supports policies to remove needless regulatory barriers that will allow home builders to provide more safe and affordable housing for hard-working American families.”

“Fighting to ensure every family in the Central Valley has the opportunity to own their own home is extremely important to me,” said Congressman Valadao. “I am honored to receive this endorsement from the National Association of Home Builders and look forward to working with them to ensure families and communities grow.”

The National Association of Home Builders is a Washington-based trade association representing more than 140,000 members involved in home building, remodeling, multifamily construction, property management, subcontracting, design, housing finance, building product manufacturing and other aspects of residential and light commercial construction. NAHB is affiliated with 700 state and local home builder’s associations around the country. NAHB’s builder members will construct about 80 percent of the new housing units projected for this year.

 Congressman David G. Valadao represents the 21st Congressional District, which includes Kings County and portions of Fresno, Tulare, and Kern Counties.
