The National Federation of Independent Business/Ohio, the state’s leading small business association, presented its prestigious Guardian of Small Business award to state Rep. Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City) in recognition of her outstanding efforts to support small businesses in the Ohio Legislature. Since its inception in 1988, this award has been presented to only 47 members of the state legislature.

“Rep. Grossman has been a staunch supporter of Ohio’s job creators – small businesses – during her time in the Ohio Legislature. We’ve been privileged to work with her on several issues that are vital to the growth and continuation of small businesses including the end of the death tax and the effort to reform municipal income taxes,” said Roger R. Geiger, vice president/executive director of NFIB/Ohio. “It’s obvious that Rep. Grossman appreciates the role small businesses play in our state’s economy and we are proud to name her a Guardian of Small Business.”

The NFIB/Ohio Leadership Council voted unanimously to present Grossman with the Guardian of Small Business Award, the organization’s most prestigious award. At a recent meeting of the council, members presented Grossman with a Guardian of Small Business trophy.

“I appreciate the efforts that small-business owners take on each and every day as they build their businesses and create jobs for their fellow Ohioans. That’s why this award is such an important and meaningful one for me,” said Grossman. “I believe we’ve made significant progress in removing some of the barriers to small-business growth, but we have a great deal of work left to do. That’s why I’m counting on groups like NFIB to continue to work with us to make this the best state in the country to own a small business.”
