I am a small business owner and often feel that government doesn't understand what it takes to be successful. Why should I trust that you are any different?
I have a Masters in Business Administration from one of the top schools in the country, led a 50 person national sales force, had profit and loss responsibility for a $15 million dollar business unit, worked to buy and start companies and pulled money out of my personal savings account to make payroll. I intimately understand the challenges of starting and growing a business.
I believe city government can be a great partner to businesses by making strategic investments that lower transaction costs and improves the skills of our workforce. That means:
- Investing in all forms of transportation,
- Partnering with our K-12 schools and higher education institutions and supporting apprenticeship training,
- Streamlining permitting, and
- Making sure our citizens have access to quality high speed internet access at an affordable price.
