• Congressman Salud Carbajal recognized by U.S Chamber with ''Spirit of Enterprise'' Award

    U.S. State Representative Salud Carbajal, who represents California's 24th congressional district, was recently honored by the U.S Chamber of Commerce with the Spirit of Enterprise Award. The recognition is given annually to members of the House of Representatives and Senate in recognition of support for pro-growth policies.

    The award is given to individuals based on their votes on critical business legislation as outlined in the Chamber’s annual scorecard, How They Voted. Members who supported the U.S Chamber’s position on at least 70 percent of those votes qualify to receive the award.

    “As the leading champion for business in Northern Santa Barbara County, we appreciate the value that Congressman Carbajal and his staff place on advancing our local economy," said Glenn Morris, President/CEO of the Santa Maria Valley Chamber. "We look forward to working with him in the future to find ways to help the Santa Maria Valley and the entire Central Coast thrive!”
