EARTHRES employees were then invited to a Q&A in which Congressman Fitzpatrick outlined his office’s position and answered questions regarding his initiatives on issues facing both Bucks and Montgomery Counties, as well as Pennsylvania, and the Nation.
“We are very excited to have had the opportunity to introduce our small business, discuss local and national water issues and showcase our firm’s capabilities and environmentally-friendly LEED Silver-certified facility with Congressman Fitzpatrick,” states Jan Hutwelker, President of EARTHRES. “We feel Congressman Fitzpatrick is dedicated to supporting small business, invoking change with groundwater regulation and safety and are honored that he took time out of his schedule to visit our office here in Bucks County.”
“When our local small businesses succeed, they create jobs, invigorate our communities, and preserve the distinct character of our local economy. As a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and member of the House Committee on Small Business, I’m committed to visiting 100 small businesses across Bucks and Montgomery Counties this year, and every year, to better appreciate the needs of local small businesses and to help them create good paying jobs right here in our community,” said Fitzpatrick. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to visit with EARTHRES and learn about their important work here in our region, and to have a chance to speak with the staff about the issues most important to them.”
