Nomination for Small Business Administrator March 16, 1993 The President today announced his intention to nominate North Carolina businessman Erskine Bowles to head the Small Business Administration. ``Small business is the engine that runs the American economy. We need to give a hand up to the new businesses and traditional mom-and-pop stores that provide the jobs in our cities and small towns,'' the President said. ``Erskine Bowles will do an excellent job of making SBA a more efficient operation that works to strengthen the backbone of small business in this country.'' Note: A biography of the nominee was made available by the Office of the Press Secretary.
