I’m extremely proud to have been named a “Guardian of Small Business” by the Washington chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business. NFIB is “the voice of small business, advocating on behalf of America’s small and independent business owners.”
The “Guardian of Small Business” awards were given on the basis of legislators’ voting records. Here’s what NFIB’s Washington State Director had to say:
Ask every member of the Washington State Legislature if he or she is a friend of small business, and you will get 147 yesses. Watch them when it comes time to prove it, and you’ll find 44 whose actions matched their words.
I’m proud that my voting record on small business issues indeed matches my rhetoric!
