The U.S. Chamber of Commerce honored Congressman Jeff Denham Tuesday by presenting him with the “Spirit of Enterprise” award at the Ripon Chamber of Commerce office before a small crowd of his supporters.
U.S. Chamber representative Vartan Djihanian lauded the Turlock based U.S. Representative with being a business builder and a job creator. He presented Denham with a small trophy and a hard construction worker hat with his name on the back indicating his support of the American workers.
Denham has received this award each year since 2011 from the U.S. Chamber.
Denham remarked that small and large businesses are the backbone of the nation’s economy and are the job creators that continue to face excessive government bureaucracy, an over complicated tax code with too many barriers when working to grow and expand. As a business owner himself, Denham said encouraging job creation and growth in the Central Valley is one of his top missions in Congress.
Denham also recognized the success of the President’s tax cuts adding he would continue to support more measures in Congress to improve the business climate to generate more jobs and better rewards for workers.
The Spirit of Enterprise award is given to members of Congress who consistently support pro-growth and pro-jobs policies.
