ATLANTA (December 8, 2011) – The National Federation of Independent Business has presented state Sen. John Bulloch with its prestigious Guardian of Small Business award. The award was presented in a ceremony at Pelham Variety Works and Construction by NFIB/Georgia State Director Kyle Jackson and business owner DeWayne Umphries, a 25-year member of NFIB.
The Guardian of Small Business award is the greatest honor that NFIB bestows on legislators in recognition of their efforts to support small business issues. NFIB/Georgia’s Leadership Council voted to present the award to Bulloch because of his work in this year’s legislative session.
“Small business is fortunate to have a friend like John Bulloch in the General Assembly,” Jackson said. “It’s an honor for NFIB to recognize his efforts by presenting him with our Guardian of Small Business award.”
