Newsletter: Advocating for Small Business and the Middle Class

August 29, 2016

Dear Fellow Central Oregonian,

Advocating for Small Business and Their Employees

It was an honor to receive the Guardian of Small Business award by the National Federation of Independent Business(NFIB) and their members for my work defending small business owners and their employees.

As a small business owner for nearly 20 years, I understand the challenges small business owners face fighting excessive and costly government regulations. Small business is the engine that drives our economic growth and I will tirelessly advocate for the small business community.

“When you hear Sen. Tim Knopp speak, whether it’s privately in his office, in committee, or on the Senate floor, it’s extremely likely that he’ll bring up small business,” said Anthony K. Smith, NFIB’s Oregon state director. “Oregon small businesses, and especially the small businesses in his district, are always a top priority for him. With experience as a small-business owner for nearly 20 years, it’s no surprise that he would score a 100 percent on his 2015-2016 NFIB Voting Record.”

Rebuilding the Middle Class

One of my top priorities is to help Central Oregonians find the affordable house of their dreams Affordable housing is crucial for community development and economic growth. Recently, I had the opportunity to join fellow First Story board members and volunteers in raising the first wall of a new affordable home in our local community.

I will continue to advocate for middle class families by creating affordable homes and helping those hard working moms, dads, and children find the home of their dreams.
