Sacramento – Senator Andy Vidak (R-Hanford) earned top marks on the California Small Business Association (CSBA) and the California Small Business Roundtable (CSBR) 2015 Legislative Honor Roll for his “continued non-partisan efforts to promote small business growth in California”.
The CSBA/CSBR Honor Roll evaluates legislator’s participation and interest in small business events and priorities. Legislators were recognized in one of three categories - Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, or Cum Laude - based on each legislator’s record of:
- holding one or more small business advisory councils in their district which includes the district’s small business agenda for state level activities;
- honoring a small business owner from their district at California Small Business Day, which is hosted by 25-plus small business organizations;
- interaction between legislators and their staff with CSBA – i.e. using CSBA as a resource and carrying one or more small business bills; and
- voting record on CSBA priority legislation.
Vidak is on the Summa Cum Laude Honor Roll, the highest rank category.
“California small businesses create jobs and are the backbone of our economy. They deserve the support of the State Legislature,” said Vidak.
