The Small Business Association of Michigan honored state Sen. Adam Hollier as its 2019 Legislator of the Year for the Senate Democratic Caucus.
“Sen. Hollier may be pretty new to holding office, but he’s already made his mark,” said SBAM President Brian Calley. “He has demonstrated a remarkable willingness to set politics aside to find the right solutions. His pragmatic approach is rare and sorely needed.”
SBAM honored Sen. Hollier for his enthusiasm for small business which has translated into him being an advocate for small business among his peers. He even created a small business caucus and is a lead sponsor on entrepreneurship legislation that is SBAM’s top 2019-2020 priority.
“Small businesses are the foundation of our community and one of the most trusted groups in my district,” said Hollier, of Detroit. “As a state Senator, it’s critically important that I support the small business owners who are investing and reinvesting in our community. Working with SBAM, we are going to make Michigan the best state to run a small business.”
The award was presented on Thursday, June 20 during SBAM’s Annual Meeting and Small Business Summit in Lansing.
Sen. Hollier was elected to the Michigan Senate in Nov. 2018 and represents portions of Wayne County including Detroit, Grosse Pointe, Hamtramck, Harper Woods and Highland Park.
The Small Business Association of Michigan focuses solely on serving the needs of Michigan’s small business community through advocacy, collaboration and buying power. Today they serve over 27,000 members in all 83 counties of Michigan. SBAM is located in Lansing, just one block from the Capitol.
