ABA and the New Jersey Bankers Association Release New Ads Thanking Rep. Josh Gottheimer

WASHINGTON —

The American Bankers Association joined the New Jersey Bankers Association today in releasing new ads thanking Representative Josh Gottheimer for helping thousands of small businesses and employees during the pandemic.

“Josh Gottheimer is a leader and consensus builder whose strong support for the Paycheck Protection Program helped save millions of jobs and small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols. “We’re lucky to have members of Congress like Representative Gottheimer who can work with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to support commonsense policies that help grow the economy.”

"Josh Gottheimer stepped up and helped protect more than 30,000 small businesses and 180,000 jobs in his district alone through the Paycheck Protection Program,” said John E. McWeeney, Jr., president and CEO of the NJBankers. “Thanks to Representative Gottheimer and his support of the CARES Act, New Jersey’s economy is doing much better than it was when COVID-19 first hit our state. We appreciate his leadership and all he does to help New Jersey workers and businesses."

The voter education campaign will begin airing in New Jersey as soon as today. Click here to see the ads.
