Elaine Parker, JCN Chief Communications Officer, released the following statement:  

“Congressman Mast works hard every day to ensure that the small business perspective is put front and center in Washington. Congressman Mast is a true leader for Florida’s small businesses and America’s 90-million-strong small business community. Job Creators Network is proud to award Congressman Mast with the Defender of Small Business Award. We look forward to continue working with him to advance pro-growth policies.”   

Rep. Brian Mast released the following statement:  

“Businesses like Hog Technologies are proof that in order to create an economic environment allowing for job growth, the government needs to get out of the way. We all have a part to play in supporting the businesses that make our community a great place to live, work and raise a family – and under Governor DeSantis’s leadership, Florida is leading the way in this effort.”

Joe Catrambone, Stuart/Martin County Chamber’s President & CEO, released the following statement:

“At the Chamber, we are hyper aware of the many external threats to our business community; things like worker shortages, talent gaps, high inflation, rising gas prices and supply chain issues. We provide services to help business owners tackle these challenges on a local level. This is why it is such an honor to partner with the Job Creators Network to bring the Great Opportunity Project here to Martin County. This is our chance to celebrate entrepreneurs who built businesses that drive our economy through innovation, providing jobs, supporting charities and youth sports, and contributing to our amazing quality of life.”
