Press Release

**Important Update: San Luis Obispo County Small Business Forum has been postponed and will be rescheduled, more information to come soon.**

Atascadero, CA – On Wednesday, September 2, 2009 Congressman McCarthy will hold a Small Business Forum for San Luis Obispo County.

Congressman Kevin McCarthy issued the following statement:

“This year’s small business forum will focus on opportunities available to help promote and expand our small businesses, and provide tools and information to local entrepreneurs.  Local small businesses are the backbone of our local economy. Small businesses, which create over 70 percent of our nation’s jobs, can fuel our nation’s economic engine and create lasting jobs our communities need.  That’s why my priority is on job-creating policies in Congress that focus on helping local small business owners, not growing Washington spending.  Through smarter economic policies that focus on job creation, we can help overcome our current economic challenges and put America back on a successful path to help us and our children achieve the American Dream.”

Media is invited to cover this event.
