Congressman Turner was recently named a ‘Hero of Main Street’ by the National Retail Federation for his outstanding support on issues including trade, health care, tax reform and labor relations. 

“I am honored to receive this award from the National Retail Federation today and continue to support policies that will allow small businesses in Dayton, Ohio and across the country to grow. Burdensome regulations continue to hold small businesses hostage and I will continue to fight for legislation that cuts back on the red tape.”-- Congressman Mike Turner 

"NRF’s Heroes of Main Street have shown through their voting records that they care about retailers, big and small, and value the role these businesses play in communities around the country.”--  NRF President and CEO, Matthew Shay

John Marshall, Owner of Grismer Tire was also in attendance for the award presentation this afternoon. 

This award was created to recognize members of Congress for their support of the retail industry’s public policy priorities. Award eligibility is defined through key votes, bill sponsorship and advocacy.
