Assembly Republican Leader Kristin Olsen, of Modesto, was honored as the California Small Business Association’s Legislator of the Year award during their annual California Small Business Roundtable Retreat in Placerville on Sunday evening.
“The small business community is the heart of the California Dream,” said Olsen. “It takes hard work and unwavering faith to start up and run a small business in this state, and I am honored to fight every day on behalf of those who provide good jobs and opportunity for Californians across the state.”
The California Small Business Association (CSBA) is a volunteer-driven, nonprofit, non-partisan organization that makes its mission to provide small business with a meaningful voice in state and federal governments. Each year, they honor state representatives for their efforts to foster a business-friendly environment in California.
Betty Jo Toccoli, President of CSBA, said “Assembly Republican Leader Olsen is a tireless advocate for California’s small businesses, so we are pleased to have this opportunity to recognize the work she has done to fight back against burdensome regulations in our state, and to bring forward common-sense reforms that work for every community.”
Olsen is a committed and respected leader with a reputation for reform, problem-solving, and hard work. During her time in the State Assembly, she has successfully passed reforms to economic, environmental, and education policies in order to protect and grow jobs and facilitate educational excellence in California.
Olsen represents Oakdale, Riverbank and Escalon in the 12th Assembly District.
