INDIANAPOLIS — State Sen. Mark Messmer, R-Jasper, received the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business Wednesday at the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis.
According to the NFIB in Indiana, Messmer was named a Guardian of Small Business based on his strong and consistent support of Indiana’s small-business community.
“Sen. Messmer understands the needs of Indiana’s small, family-owned businesses and the necessity of reducing the government’s role in their lives, as well as the importance that business plays in creating jobs,” said Barbara Quandt, NFIB’s state director in Indiana.
The Guardian of Small Business Award is the organization’s highest honor, reserved for lawmakers who demonstrate exceptional leadership and consistency in supporting the small-business agenda. On the issues identified by NFIB members as most important, Messmer’s support was pivotal in ensuring small businesses and the issues that affect them are a priority.
“Small businesses are the foundation of every community in our state, especially my own,” Messmer said. “I greatly admire our small, Hoosier-owned businesses and will continue working with my colleagues to make Indiana a place where they can thrive.”
For more than 75 years, the NFIB has advocated on behalf of America’s small-and independent-business owners in Washington, D.C., and all 50 state capitals.
