Wittman Recognized with Award for Defending Small Businesses

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01) announced that he received the 2022 Defender of Small Business award from the Job Creators Network.

“It is the American entrepreneurial spirit, not bureaucrats in Washington, that make our nation an incredible place to live and work,” said Congressman Wittman. “As we have been constantly reminded, especially considering the recent economic challenges, American small businesses are the backbone of our economy. Thank you to the Job Creators Network for this recognition - I will always fight to ensure we promote policies that are pro-business, pro-growth, pro-worker, and pro-American, and I will push my colleagues in Washington to do the same, so we may support our constituents to succeed.”

"One of the core elements of our Great Opportunity Project has been to highlight the men and women throughout the country who are helping small businesses to succeed and protecting them from the onslaught of bad government policies coming from Washington. Rep. Wittman is one of those champions for small businesses, and we're proud to give him our "Defender of Small Business" award for all of his efforts. Small businesses hold the key to our economic recovery, and on behalf of them, I once again thank Rep. Wittman for fighting for the entrepreneurs and innovators who are the backbone of our country." - Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of Job Creators Network
