“Small Business Leaders for Bruce Starr” coalition announced

(Hillsboro, Oregon)  Bruce Starr’s campaign for Labor Commissioner continues to gain momentum as he announces “Small Business Leaders for Bruce Starr,” a coalition comprised of small business owners who support Starr’s message of job creation and economic growth.

This growing coalition will be lead by two prominent and well-respected small business owners: Les Davis, Owner and CEO of Lithtex Printing Solutions, a small Hillsboro based printing company; and Rob Miller, President of Trailblazer Foods, a Portland based food packaging and distribution company.

Davis founded Lithtex Printing Solutions as a quick print shop in 1974 and was recently named Washington County Chamber’s Small Business of the Year.

Trailblazer Foods was founded in 1984 and under Miller’s guidance, Trailblazer Food Products has become one of the largest manufacturers of Preserves, Spreads, and Jellies.

“As a small business owner, I’m proud to be a part of Bruce’s campaign for Labor Commissioner, said Les Davis. I know he will make job creation his number one priority and focus on helping grow Oregon’s economy.  I’ve had the privilege of watching Bruce over the years, working to make it easier for Oregon’s businesses to hire more employees and put people back to work.”

“I’m honored to serve on Bruce’s small business coalition. I know he is the best candidate to work with businesses to cut the red tape and regulation that stymies job growth.  It’s time we elect leaders who have spent time in the private sector and understand the struggles small companies face when trying to hire more employees,” said Miller.

Bruce Starr is a small business owner and lives in Hillsboro with his wife and two children. Starr is currently serving his third term in the Oregon State Senate.

    Yes indeed.  Let us all small business owners come together to support Brucie so he can finally have a high paying job.  A job that ADVOCATES for the employee-worker (wage & hour) and not the small business. Gag me!

    In what universe does it make sense for a business lobbyist to be the head of BOLI? Should we make a plaintiff personal injury lawyer the Director of the Insurance division? 

    Sen. Starr has many viable career paths. But I don’t think this is one of them.
