WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-TN) announced Wednesday that he will join other small business owners turned legislators in the newly-formed Congressional Job Creators Caucus.
The permanent working group is open exclusively to members of Congress with experience as small business owners and will provide an opportunity to apply real-world job creating experience to the congressional legislative process.
“Small businesses are essential to our nation’s economy and job creation,” Congressman Fincher said. “No one better understands the burden that higher taxes and increased regulations place on small businesses’ ability to operate and grow better than those who are directly affected. As a farmer and business owner from Frog Jump, I want to apply my real world experience to the legislative process. I look forward to working with my colleagues to foster a better environment for economic growth.”
Rep. Reid Ribble (R-WI), a founding member of the caucus who ran a small successful roofing business in Appleton, Wisc., for more than 30 years, welcomed the addition of Fincher to the caucus: “I’m honored to welcome Congressman Fincher to our caucus and know that he stands ready to apply his private sector skills into molding a more jobs-friendly Congress,” said Ribble. “Years of experience have taught Congressman Fincher what it takes to run a successful business that creates jobs and I greatly look forward to adding his expertise to our working group.”
Current members of the caucus include Reid Ribble (WI-08), Scott Rigell (VA-02), Richard Hanna (NY-24), Bob Gibbs (OH-18) and Marlin Stutzman (IN-03).
