U.S. Rep. Bob Gibbs (OH-7) yesterday toured several public and private facilities throughout Avon, OH.  He accompanied Avon Mayor Jim Smith to visit Shurtech LLC, FlavorSeal Food Packaging, French Creek Family YMCA and Willoway Nursery.

“I am glad to have had the opportunity to learn more about these vital businesses in Avon,” said Gibbs. “It was refreshing and energizing to see firsthand the operations of successful businesses that are fueled by the hard work and dedication of their proprietors and employees.  The innovation I saw at these facilities today is what we need to jumpstart our ailing economy and thrive. 

“I cringe at the thought of imposing burdensome taxes and regulations on these fundamental job creators, and today was a stark reminder of the importance of standing behind our small business community, and not letting the federal government suffocate them with unnecessary red tape and bureaucracy,” Gibbs continued.
