Congressman Franks is Small Business Advocate

The nation's largest small-business advocacy organization recently saluted Congressman Bob Franks of the Seventh Congressional District for recognizing the importance of small business to America and working for small business in Congress.

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) kicked off "Small Business Works for America," a grassroots public awareness program to inform and enhance both appreciation of small-business contributions to the American way of life and the problems facing independent business owners. As part of that kickoff, NFIB presented lawmakers with certificates thanking them for supporting small business.

"Congressman Franks knows all that small business does for this country," NFIB President Jack Faris said. "This program points out the role small business plays in both the national economy and the quality of life in local communities. But it also emphasizes to lawmakers that certain legislation and regulations can threaten the profitability -- indeed the survival -- of small firms everywhere. It's important to recognize members of Congress who understand this."

NFIB represents small and independent business owners in all 50 states.

The Seventh Congressional District includes Westfield, Scotch Plains and Fanwood.
