LaMalfa has gained my trust

As the chairman of the largest franchise owners association in the United States, I have frequent business with Congress on issues impacting small business franchise owners. While we often have “Wall Street” business names, we are the local owners that invest, support, employ, and pay taxes in our communities. I am also a franchise owner in Grass Valley and Auburn.

My position allows me to work with many Congressional offices on both sides of the aisle. I can tell you it is a pleasure to work with our Congressman, Rep. Doug LaMalfa. He and his staff are very accommodating, and open to discussion on many topics.

While we may not agree on every issue, I have always felt I have been given the opportunity to give my position. I also know from my contacts with Democrat representatives, they feel they can work with him. This has been evidenced by Rep. LaMalfa being a primary cosponsor on H.R. 2735, with Rep. Huffman, and as sponsor of H.R. 4300, with primary cosponsor Rep. Garamendi.

From my experience, Rep. LaMalfa has been an effective representative, and has gained my trust and support.

Keith Miller, chairman, Coalition of Franchisee Associations
