Nashua, NH – This morning, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) kicked off her “Supporting Small Business” tour with a series of stops in Nashua. Through her tour, the Congresswoman plans to meet with small business owners and employees to share her jobs plan and hear directly from them about what more Congress can do to better support their success.
Kuster kicked off the tour today with a stop at Riverwalk Café in Nashua, where she chatted with local voters and heard from the owner about how Congress can help local businesses like Riverwalk succeed. Next, Kuster visited Djinn Spirits in Nashua to meet with the owner and discuss her plan for economic growth in the state. Lastly, Kuster rounded off her day in Nashua with a stop at Bellavance Beverage Company, to take a tour of the facilities and hear from the owners and employees.
“Since taking office, I’ve visited dozens upon dozens of small businesses to hear directly from them about how I can best support their needs in Congress. Based on these conversations, I wrote a Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Agenda, which I’ve urged my fellow lawmakers to follow,” said Congresswoman Annie Kuster. “I’m so excited to launch today’s ‘Supporting Small Business Tour,’ which will give me a chance to continue these conversations as we move forward into the election season.”
Kuster will continue her “Supporting Small Business” tour with stops at local businesses across the Second District, as well as a candidates’ forum with the Nashua Chamber of Commerce, where she’ll discuss her plans for supporting economic growth in the Granite State. Reporters interested in accompanying the Congresswoman on any of her “Supporting Small Business” stops should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congresswoman Kuster has made working to help create more jobs and opportunity for Granite State workers her number one priority in Washington. She’s visited scores of small businesses through her Congress-At-Your-Company series, and she authored a Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Agenda, a bipartisan blueprint that outlines steps Congress can take to help Granite State companies grow and create more jobs, which was largely based on the conversations she had during her Congress-At-Your-Company visits. She’s also held a series of job fairs throughout the state to match up job seekers with thousands of open positions, and she’s fought for tax breaks for small businesses to help them grow.
