The Kansas office of the National Federation of Independent Business has presented its coveted Guardian of Small Business Award to state Rep. Jerry Lunn.
The Guardian of Small Business award is the most prestigious honor that NFIB bestows on legislators in recognition of their efforts to support small business issues. The NFIB Kansas Leadership Council, an advisory board comprised of NFIB members, voted to present the award to Lunn for supporting small-business issues in this year’s session of the Legislature.
Dan Murray, state director of NFIB, said, “Jerry Lunn has had a perfect 100 percent voting record with NFIB since 2013, but this year he was an exceptionally strong advocate for small business.
“His support of property tax fairness and transparency legislation led to a renewed opportunity for small businesses to have their voice heard at the local level with property tax increases are proposed,” Murray said. “Representative Lunn has also been a leading voice against tax increases on small businesses.
“Kansans are fortunate to have leaders like Jerry Lunn representing them in the Legislature,” Murray said. “On behalf of all small businesses in Kansas, NFIB wants to thank Representative Lunn for everything’s done on behalf of our state’s entrepreneurs.”
