“I am truly humbled by this award,” Rep. Baker said. “As a freshman legislator, my colleagues and I got off the ground running, understanding that the solution to Ohio's prosperity is creating the environment to retain, create and bring jobs to Ohio. We need to continually work towards being a competitive and business-friendly state. The “Future of Ohio” jobs package containing 10 job-focused bills emerged from that effort.”
The Chuck McDonald COSE Advocacy Award was named for Charles McDonald, who was a former COSE chairman and a strong small business advocate. The award recognizes a key legislator or policymaker every year who works tirelessly to enhance the interests of the small business community.
COSE acknowledged that through Rep. Baker’s efforts with the “Future of Ohio” economic development jobs package, the representative has shown her willingness and dedication in helping small businesses succeed in Ohio. They also recognized that as a small business owner, Rep. Baker understands the challenges small business owners face.
“As a 30-year small business owner, I understand the struggles small businesses face,” Rep. Baker said. “I will continue to work toward strong fiscal policies that lower taxes, mandates and regulations on small business. Given that over 80 percent of our businesses in Ohio are small business, they are the backbone of our state. We must allow the spirit of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship to grow. As I continue to say -
It's All About Jobs!
