NASHVILLE, (June 27, 2016) — The Tennessee office of the National Federation of Independent Business, the state’s leading small-business association, has presented its coveted Guardian of Small Business Award to state Sen. Dolores Gresham. NFIB made the presentation this morning at Feel Good Floors, an NFIB member in Lexington.
The Guardian of Small Business award is the most prestigious honor that NFIB bestows on legislators in recognition of their efforts to support small business issues. The NFIB Tennessee Leadership Council, an advisory board comprised of NFIB members, voted to present the award to the legislator for supporting small-business issues in the 109th Tennessee General Assembly (2015-2016).
Jim Brown, state director of NFIB, said, “Dolores Gresham scored another perfect 100 percent voting record with NFIB. She continues to be a very strong voice for small business, supporting less regulation and a stable business environment for free enterprise.”
“Tennesseans are fortunate to have leaders like Dolores Gresham representing them in our legislature,” Brown said. “On behalf of all small businesses in Tennessee, NFIB wants to thank Senator Gresham for everything she’s done for our state’s entrepreneurs.”
Gresham, who serves on the Senate Commerce & Labor Committee, is an NFIB member from Somerville.
