“I am honored to receive the Guardian of Small Business Award for my longstanding and unwavering commitment to small businesses, which employ millions of Americans. While this has been a difficult year for everyone, small business owners and their dedicated workers have been some of the hardest hit by the wrath of the coronavirus pandemic. As our nation navigates the remaining challenges and works to recover and rebuild our economy, one of the best things we can do is help our small business job creators survive these difficult times. Our nation’s prosperity depends on their existence. In the days ahead, I will continue stand with small businesses.”
