The International Sign Association (ISA) has once again coordinated a congressman visit to a sign shop. This time ISA helped facilitate a meeting in Texas at Southwest Signs, which is a family-owned business with more than 100 employees and a facility of 100,000 square feet. Republican US Congressman Francisco Canseco (TX-23) visited the San Antonio shop on May 25.
Congressman Canseco witnessed firsthand how signs are made and the key role they play in helping to promote America’s small businesses. His background as a real estate developer, especially in retail, provided him with a good understanding and appreciation of the importance of signs, but his tour provided more information about sign construction and how companies like Southwest Signs contribute to the economic vitality of his district and the region.
“I am honored to represent this fine manufacturing facility and the hardworking employees of Southwest Signs as they continue to make the visual communications that help local retailers and national businesses advertise and identify themselves,” said Congressman Canseco. “It was a great opportunity to see these talented and hardworking employees in action, and to listen to their concerns for their business, the economy, and our country.”
Congressman Canseco spoke with many of the Southwest Signs employees assembled about efforts in Congress to help grow the economy and create jobs; how to reduce our country’s $16 trillion debt; and how excessive government regulations impact the ability of sign companies to reach their full potential.
