Job Creators Network Presents Rep. Hagedorn with “Defender of Small Business” Award

Rochester, MN (September 13, 2021) – Today, the Job Creators Network (JCN) presented Rep. Jim Hagedorn with its “Defender of Small Business” award at the third 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 at least seven states over four weeks, it consists of events with select Members of Congress and local small business leaders. Next week, the JCN bus will be in Tampa, Florida. To see photos of the bus and the full bus tour schedule, click here.

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

“As a member of the House Small Business Committee and the House Agriculture Committee, Representative Hagedorn works hard every day on behalf of Minnesota’s farms and other small businesses. The impact of his outstanding work benefits not just Minnesota, but all of America’s 90-million-strong small business community. Job Creators Network appreciates his leadership, and we proud to award him with our Defender of Small Business Award.”

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.
