WASHINGTON, D.C.Katie Vlietstra, Vice President for Government Relations and Public Affairs at the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE), the nation’s leading advocate and resource for the self-employed and micro-businesses, today released the following statement with news that the Obama Administration will nominate Maria Contreras-Sweet as Administrator of the Small Business Administration (SBA) today at a White House press conference.

“We are optimistic that with the announcement of Maria Contreras-Sweet to lead the Small Business Administration, President Obama and his Administration will be focused on fostering and encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit of this country, including for the 23 million self-employed who are working tirelessly each an everyday to achieve the American Dream.

“The year ahead is full of critical challenges that the NASE is eager to work to address with the leadership of the SBA, ranging from the implementation of the new health care law to tax filing changes to the continued inequity in the tax code faced by the self-employed. Our community will need a strong and vocal advocate inside the Administration to ensure we have the tools and resources to be competitive not only locally, but also globally.

“We look forward to working with Administrator-designee Contreras-Sweet, the Administration and Congress to ensure our community continues to strengthen our economy.”

**Vlietstra will be attending today’s announcement at the White House.  For media interested in booking interviews with Vlietstra before or after the announcement, please contact Kristofer Eisenla at kristofer@lunaeisenlamedia.com or at 202-670-5747**
