District 22 Congressman Pete Olson recently attended a ribbon cutting for the expansion of Kevin Pattonâ€™s Richmond-based State Farm agency. Patton was recently recognized by the Central Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce Alliance as businessperson of the year.
â€œSmall businesses are the backbone of our economy and the number one employer of Americans,â€ said Olson. â€œI congratulate Kevin Patton on receiving the distinction and honor of the Fort Bend Chamber Allianceâ€™s Business Person of the Year in 2010. Your hard work, consistent service to the business community and service to the Chamber of Commerce, embody the spirit of being a good neighbor. I pledge to work to reduce excessive federal burdens that strain resources and prevent positive growth. Thank you for bringing pride to Richmond and the 22nd Congressional District.â€
