Several business groups have endorsed Congressman Richard Hanna in his reelection bid.

Meier Supply in Conklin, which is a wholesale refrigeration business, backed the Congressman this morning.

The company says Hanna's transparency, efforts to control spending and create a good business climate are key reasons for its support.

Hanna has also been endorsed by the U-S Chamber of Commerce, Associated Builders and Contractors, and the New York State Association of Realtors.

Hanna says he works hard on the behalf of employers and their workers.

"I'm chairman of contracting and labor. We've had a number of bills that are in the works and have passed that help small businesses and large businesses like Meier Supply here. This is a beautiful 100,000 square foot building," said Hanna.

Hanna owned his own business in the construction industry before retiring and running for Congress.

He is in his second term.
