I will be dedicated to helping all of our businesses thrive in our city. From the small business with one employee to our large companies, I want to see them expand. I want to assist current business owners and people wanting to start a business by helping reduce government red tape. I want to develop a streamlined online permitting system. I want to use technology like that to implement a “start-up in a day” program that helps entrepreneurs by reducing government barriers. I will also commit to establishing a committee of local business owners to meet to discuss their issues to find ways the City can help navigate government. It is more important for entrepreneurs to focus on making their business successful than navigating bureaucracy.
