Today, U.S. Congressman Robert J. Dold (IL-10) was given the “Guardian of Small Business” award for his record of standing up for small businesses in the 112th Congress. The award was given by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
“I am honored to receive this award,” said Dold. “As a small business owner, I know the government needs to create an environment in which job creators can grow and hire more workers. Part of my Main Street Jobs Agenda is ensuring access to capital for small businesses and I will continue to promote pro-growth policies that will enable our small businesses to move this economy forward and create more jobs.”
“In the 112th Congress, Representative Robert Dold proved that he is a champion of small business,” said Dan Danner, President and CEO of NFIB. “The Guardian of Small Business Award is a legislative award given to U.S. Representatives and Senators who vote to promote and protect the right of small-business owners to own, operate and grow their business.”
Rep. Dold is a small business owner and he has faced many of the challenges confronting business leaders today and is using that firsthand experience in Washington to help find ways to create more jobs and strengthen the economy.
