“Congressman Stivers is a long-standing advocate for small business owners,” explains Molly Gimmel, NAWBO National Board Chair. “He understands the important role small business owners and women business owners play in our economy and works diligently to ensure they have access to the capital and other resources they need to start and scale their businesses.  We are fortunate to have Steve Stivers in Congress and are proud to endorse his campaign for re-election.”

“I am honored to have the support of women business owners that are powering our economy forward,” Congressman Stivers said. “Together, we will work to continue to improve the business climate by increasing access to capital, fighting rising health care costs, and improving workforce development so business owners can find the qualified workers that they need.”
