Final Stop in JCN’s “Bring Small Businesses Back” Bus Tour, Covering 9 States Over 2 Months, Part of a Seven-Figure Campaign Against Biden’s “War on Small Business”

Asheboro, NC (November 9, 2021) – Today, the Job Creators Network (JCN) presented Rep. Ted Budd with its “Defender of Small Business” award at the final stop in their national Bring Small Businesses Back (BSBB) Bus Tour. The bus tour is part of JCN’s seven-figure BSBB campaign and is a direct response to the anti-small business proposals and policies of the current administration. Covering nine states over two months, it consists of events with select Members of Congress and local small business leaders. To see photos of the bus and the full bus tour schedule, click here.  

Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, released the following statement: 

“Representative Budd is one of the strongest champions for small businesses in Congress. As a small business owner, Representative Budd understands the powerful impact that pro-growth policies can have on jobs and opportunity. Representative Budd has shown tremendous leadership on behalf of North Carolina’s Main Street businesses, strengthening America’s 90-million-strong small business community. Job Creators Network appreciates Representative Budd’s outstanding work, and we are pleased to award him our Defender of Small Business Award.”

Rep. Ted Budd released the following statement: 

“I want job creators across North Carolina to know that there are men and women from Washington to Raleigh to Asheboro who know their challenges and have their backs.

“For as long as I hold public office, I will do my best to be the voice of North Carolina’s job creators in Washington, so that more North Carolinians can live the American dream.”

JCN is hitting the road to accomplish a number of goals:

  • Highlight the needs of small businesses as they struggle to recover from the pandemic.
  • Expose the current war on small business as the Left pursues policies like higher taxes, higher minimum wages, and massive government spending that is already causing consumer prices and the costs associated with operating a small business to skyrocket.
  • Promote the business leaders, legislators, and other advocates that are defending small businesses.
