Representative receives pro-business honor
June 22, 2010
State Rep. Glenn Anderson has been named a Guardian of Small Business by a national advocacy group.
National Federation of Independent Business leaders said Anderson — a Fall City Republican whose district includes Issaquah — had a 100 percent “pro-small-business” voting record in the 2009-10 legislative sessions. Anderson has received the award five times since he joined the state House of Representatives a decade ago.
“The health of our small business community is the key indicator of a vibrant and growing economy,” Anderson said in a news release. “They are the engines that provide good, family-wage jobs that create personal wealth and ownership in the areas where they are located.”
Anderson will face Sammamish Democrat Dean Willard as he campaigns for a sixth term. The race also includes David Spring, the 2008 Democratic nominee for the seat, although local Democrats endorsed Willard for the post.
