Building Our Economy

I have announced a comprehensive platform for creating more opportunities in our city.

Here’s a plan how we can create more local jobs and how my experience can help make it happen:

  • Supporting small businesses creates jobs: I have years of experience building high-tech businesses that provide advanced technology to NASA among others.
  • Building affordable office space creates jobs: I know from experience what entrepreneurs need to win because I am an entrepreneur.
  • Opening satellite offices creates jobs: I have strong relationships with senior management at some of the top high-tech employers so I can get things going.
  • Advocating for local health care services creates jobs: I can bring people together and build consensus.

How can we better support small business?

I have proposed two key initiatives for supporting small business:

  1. Creating a marketing program so small businesses reach more customers and grow.
  2. Creating a co-op supply program so small businesses can obtain affordable supplies and resources.
