Dover, NH - Eddie Edwards, candidate for Congress in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District, released the following statement regarding the National Small Business Week:
“This is National Small Business Week, which is a time to recognize how vital our small businesses are to the backbone of our economy, especially here in New Hampshire. Now is when we honor our state's unsung heroes – the countless entrepreneurs who take immense risks and work tirelessly every day to keep our residents employed and serviced.
“This week is also an important reminder that our leaders in Washington need to focus on legislation that supports existing small businesses rather than discourages them. If Congress truly wants to help our nation’s entrepreneurs, I strongly believe they must pass real tax reform and repeal onerous over-regulations. In addition to celebrating our job creators this week, it is imperative for our legislators to remember that it is their job to spend every day developing new ideas that will give small businesses the freedom necessary to grow our economy."
