Andy Harris Receives NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award


On Thursday, September 13, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) awarded Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) with the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award for the 115th Congress.

Jon Kurrle, Vice President of Federal Government Relations, awarded Congressman Harris with the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award on behalf of the congressman’s “strong small business voting record in the 115th Congress” and his “support of small business and free enterprise.” The Congressman received the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award three times previously during the 112th, 113th, and 114th Congressional Terms. This will be his fourth consecutive Congressional term receiving the award.

Congressman Harris issued the following statement upon receiving the award:

“I am honored to receive the NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business. The NFIB is a strong advocate for small businesses across America. Small businesses, entrepreneurs, and innovators are the backbone of our country and employ the majority of our workforce.  For many people, owning their own business is part of the American Dream.  I will continue to support efforts to reduce the tax and regulatory burdens faced by our small employers.”


Letters to Editor

  1. What a waste of hardware and hot air. The Trump administration’s tax cut didn’t make a dent in the incomes of small business but it surely helped give more money to the big corporations and now with the tariffs with China and our other neighbors, this dimwit in the 1st district and the knuckle head President are costing small business more money. Frankly, the quicker we get rid of both of idiots and the minions that supports them both the better. So little time is left, send Harris to the woodshed of politics along with the idiots that gave him that hardware.
