ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. – State Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, kicked off Small Business Week by presenting Sara Alwin Gallagher of Alwin Anthony Salon with a Good Neighbor Award. The award was presented to Gallagher due to her exceptional business as well as her extensive work in the community.
“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our community, and Alwin Anthony Salon is a perfect example of what a great small business should be,” said Yingling. “Ms. Gallagher not only runs a quality business, but she also takes the time to give back to her community in very meaningful ways.”
Yingling has been a staunch supporter of local small businesses. During his time in the General Assembly, Yingling has voted to decrease fees on small businesses increase tax credits for businesses that create local jobs, and provide tax relief for businesses that offer internships and apprenticeships.
“I grew up working for my family’s restaurant, so I know the importance of small businesses and the work that they do,” said Yingling. “Not only is it important to recognize the small businesses that already do amazing work for the community, but I am also committed to creating more opportunities for new small businesses to grow and thrive in our district and throughout the state.”
