Speaker Boehner: Rep. Renee Ellmers to Discuss GOP Jobs Plan in Weekly Republican Address
“I'm proud to deliver this week's Republican Address to the nation,” Rep. Ellmers said. “Our Republican majority has been working hard to focus on the things that matter most to Americans – fixing our economy and creating jobs. It is time that the Obama Administration and Democrats in Congress make this their priority as well and work with us to remove the barriers that are inhibiting small businesses from hiring. We have a plan to reclaim a prosperous future for all Americans and now is the time to make it happen."
Congresswoman Ellmers proudly serves North Carolina’s Second District on the House Committees on Agriculture, Foreign Affairs and Small Business, where she chairs the Subcommittee on Health Care and Technology. A registered nurse for more than 21 years, Rep. Ellmers and her husband own a small medical practice in Dunn, a small town 40 miles south of Raleigh. She has been active in community affairs, having served as Vice President of Community Development for the Chamber of Commerce and as President Elect of the Chamber.
“Americans rightly expect their leaders to focus on jobs as small businesses try to overcome Washington Democrats’ ‘stimulus’ policies, and that’s what our plan is all about,” Speaker Boehner said. “Renee has used her small business experience to promote common-sense solutions that will get government out of the way so our economy can get back to creating jobs. I look forward to hearing what she has to say in the weekly address.”
