On Wednesday, State Representative Bob Dettmer (R-Forest Lake) received the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business Minnesota (NFIB), the states largest small business group with 13,000 members.
Representative Dettmer is a real friend of small business and we are happy to announce he has earned the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award, said Mike Hickey, State Director of NFIB.
Dettmer received the award in recognition of his support for legislative issues critical to small businesses. To receive the award, legislators had to demonstrate a supportive voting record for small business during the 2013-14 sessions and were scored on ten votes.
Its an honor to receive the Guardian of Small Business Award from NFIB, said Rep. Dettmer. I will continue to fight for small businesses in Minnesota, promoting policies that help spur job growth and entrepreneurial innovation. When our small businesses prosper, so does our economy.
