STATEHOUSE (March 8, 2019) – State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica) received the National Federation of Independent Business’ Guardian of Small Business Award recently at the Statehouse in Indianapolis.

“As a small-business owner, I understand the effort and dedication that is needed to maintain and grow a business,” Negele said. “Indiana’s hard working entrepreneurs contribute greatly to the state’s economy, and I will continue supporting legislation that helps them succeed.”

The Guardian of Small Business Award is the National Federation of Independent Business’ highest honor, and it is reserved for lawmakers who demonstrate exceptional leadership and consistency in supporting the small business agenda.

The National Federation of Independent Business was founded in 1943, with a mission to promote and protect the right of its members to own, operate and grow their businesses.
