Eau Claire, Wisc. – On Sunday, small business owner and nonprofit leader Rebecca Cooke announced endorsements by 26 small business owners across the 3rd Congressional District.
“I am proud to have the backing of fellow small business owners. I know first hand the challenges small businesses face, from weathering the pandemic to rising costs with inflation. These folks know I’ll be a fierce advocate for working people and building an economy that works for Main Street, not just big corporations,” Cooke said Sunday.
“Rebecca has been a strong supporter of small businesses in this region, and a huge promoter of women entrepreneurs with her work on the Red Letter Grant. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve seen record inflation, and record profits, from big corporations price-gouging to profit off of everyday Americans and small businesses. I am excited that she is running for Congress, and will bring the voice of Main Street to Washington,” said Aaron Salmon, owner of SHIFT Cyclery + Coffee.
