Congressman Cory Gardner (R-CO) accepted the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Thursday, Sept. 13. NFIB president and CEO Dan Danner presented the award.
“It is an honor to receive this award,” Gardner said. “I have always believed that small businesses are the primary drivers of job creation and economic growth in our nation. It is important to keep government out of their way and provide stable economic conditions so that our small business community can continue to thrive.”
“In the 112th Congress, Representative Cory Gardner proved that he is a champion of small business,” Danner said. “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.”
