Stronger Families. Stronger Communities. Stronger Washington

Rep. Peter Abbarno received the ‘Guardian of Small Business’ award from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). For nearly 80 years, NFIB has been advocating on behalf of America’s small and independent business owners, both in Washington, D.C., and in all 50 state capitals. NFIB is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, and member-driven association.

It is an honor to be recognized as a ‘Guardian of Small Business’ for my efforts advocating for small business employers and employees in SW Washington and throughout the State of Washington. Small and independent businesses are the heartbeat of communities like mine. Washington must continue to spark the entrepreneurial spirit, create an environment for job creation, and cultivate innovation in every corner of the state.
