CHIUSANO RECEIVES BUSINESS ADVOCATE AWARD FROM NJ SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTERS

Deputy Assembly Republican Leader Gary Chiusano, R-Sussex, Morris and Warren, is one of three recipients of the New Jersey Small Business Development Centers’ (NJSBDC) “Business Advocate Award,” given in recognition for his support of small business owners. Thirteen companies were also recognized by NJSBDC for their leadership and success within the small business community.

“Small businesses are one of the most important components to both New Jersey’s economy and the country’s,” said Chiusano, who is a member of the Assembly Budget Committee. “These entrepreneurs create jobs and are willing to make an investment in our state because they believe in the opportunities New Jersey presents for success.

“The NJSBDC gives the guidance and support necessary for small businesses to achieve success,” continued Chiusano. “When small businesses thrive it leads to a New Jersey with a more vibrant economy. I am proud of their good work, and plan to continue to support them and lend my voice to the furtherance of small business growth in Trenton.

“These companies make vital contributions to our state with their innovative and creative thinking and provide people with the chance to build a career,” stated Chiusano. “As a small business operator, I appreciate their commitment and hard work in order to make their operation a success.”

The NJSBDC network counsels almost 6,000 small business clients each year, sponsors more than 900 training seminars and helps facilitate millions of dollars in financing for its clients annually.

The 13 small businesses honored at Tuesday’s ceremony include: Acrilex, Inc., Bacon & Graham, Inc., Cape Atlantic Physical Therapy and Wellness Center, Christie’s Artisan Bread and Pastry Shop, DirtWorx Excavating, LLC, Environmental Infrastructure Solutions, FEMWORKS, LLC, Gentle Care Home Services, Inc., Jidan Cleaning, Lakecalm, Inc., Logistic Solutions, Inc., Music Notes Academy, and Sentinel Photonics.

“When I was meeting with the award winners before the luncheon began you could see in their faces and in their eyes the excitement, motivation and dedication to be successful, “Chiusano said. “It’s really inspiring.”

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran
