Commissioner Jerrell will focus on creating new jobs by working with entrepreneurs and small business owners to help them grow
SUPPORT FOR OUR SMALL BUSINESS
Small business is the economic engine that drives our economy. Statistics show that 75% of residents work in a business with 20 or fewer employees. As a small business owner, I understand that it is imperative that our locally owned businesses are supported through adequate access to information and capital resources, which are needed to set the conditions for economic development and job creation. Small businesses will be the driver to grow District 4 and improve the quality of life for our residents.
I will examine impediments to beginning and growing small businesses in District four such as zoning restrictions and tax burdens.
I will focus on leveraging support for existing businesses to grow and expand through investment and access to capital.
