Keeseville, N.Y. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik was awarded the “Guardian of Small Business” Award by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) for her work in Congress to support small businesses and promote local entrepreneurship. This is the second year in a row that Congresswoman Stefanik has received this award. Congresswoman Stefanik visited Loreman's Embroidery, Engraving, and Screen Printing in Keeseville today, where she received this award.

“Small businesses are truly the backbone of our North Country communities and economies, and I am proud to be their number one advocate in Congress,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “Growing up in a small business family, I know firsthand the importance that small businesses have in our communities, and I have fiercely advocated for policies and programs to support them. The COVID-19 pandemic presented real challenges for our local businesses and I am proud to have worked in a bipartisan manner to deliver results for them as they overcame those challenges and continued to provide for the communities who rely on them. I am honored to be a recipient of this prestigious award, and I thank the NFIB for highlighting my work on behalf of the families and individuals in my district who work tirelessly to generate jobs, revenue, and opportunity for their communities.”
