JCNF to Testify Before House Small Business Committee on SBA Politicization

Washington, D.C. (June 4, 2024) – Elaine Parker, President of the Job Creators Network Foundation, is scheduled to testify today in front of the House Committee on Small Business. Parker will highlight how the Small Business Administration (SBA) has strayed from its core mission of supporting Main Street—pointing to recent alarming news that the agency is registering voters in Michigan.

 Read an excerpt from Parker’s testimony below:

“I’m not here today to badmouth the SBA. In fact, the SBA provided a lifeline to the small business I used to co-own—a Goodyear Tire dealership in Martin County, Florida—when we needed it most. I’m forever grateful. But that’s also why I’m so appalled by the politicization of the agency.

Turning the SBA into an arm of the Biden 2024 re-election campaign and weaponizing it to advance Democratic party interests violates political norms and strips the SBA of its well-earned role and reputation as a defender of small businesses.”
