Statement of SVLG CEO Ahmad Thomas Urging Congressional Leaders to Put Aside Politics and Get Back to the Business of the American People

“At this stage in our business cycle and given the continuing macroeconomic headwinds, the political circus in Washington around the Speakership is the last thing our businesses need. A functioning Congress is essential to keep our innovation economy thriving, especially during this time of uncertainty.

I think this is a symptom of much deeper-rooted issues within our political system, but it’s critical that leaders of the House put politics aside and get back to the business of serving the American people.”

— Ahmad Thomas, CEO of Silicon Valley Leadership Group (SVLG)
