Bost Campaign Launches Job Creator Coalition

“As a former small business owner myself, I know that these companies are the lifeblood of the Southern Illinois’ economy,” said Bost.  “I am proud to have these hardworking men and women, regardless of whether President Obama believes they built their companies or not.  I am fighting for a pro-jobs agenda in Congress of lower taxes and less regulation because that’s the only way for America to meet its full potential in a competitive global marketplace.”

Mike Bost has earned the support of national pro-business groups such as the US Chamber of Commerce and the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB), because of his pro-jobs record. He is running to limit government regulation and fight for lower taxes so working families in Illinois can thrive.

First elected in 2014, Mike Bost represents Illinois’ 12th Congressional District in the United States Congress. A retired U.S. Marine and former firefighter, Mike and his wife Tracy own a business in their hometown of Murphysboro, IL.
