Let presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain know that small business is important to you

January 24, 2008

Sample letter:

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to express my concern regarding the lack of discussion surrounding the diversion of federal small business contracts to Fortune 1000 corporations.  As you may know, small business issues have been virtually ignored by presidential candidates across the board.   This is especially concerning considering the more than 12 federal investigations, which have found that billions of dollars in federal small business contracts have been diverted from legitimate small businesses to some of the largest corporations in the United States and Europe. 

With Fortune 500 corporations like Lockheed Martin, Bechtel, Hewlett Packard and BAE Systems receiving federal small business contracts, I believe that it is time to interject this issue into the presidential discussion.

Recently, SBA Administrator Steven Preston commented on the presidential race, stating, "I think small business is strangely absent.  It is a major concern for me."

Small businesses are the backbone of our nation's economy.  It is my understanding that small businesses employ nearly half of all private sector employees and create more than half of non-farm private gross domestic product (GDP). It is for these reasons that I implore you to begin the discussion surrounding the diversion of federal small business contracts to Fortune 1000 corporations and the issues that matter most to small business owners.

Thank you,
