Economic Growth:Small Business

As a small business owner, I know all too well how excessive taxes, regulations, and changing economic conditions affect the ability of businesses to survive.  Small businesses are the backbone of our economy at the national, state, and community level and we can do more to help the people who own these businesses to thrive and grow.  If we allow our business climate to burden these businesses, they either fail or leave to a more competitive state with more favorable business conditions.  When our businesses grow, they increase employment by adding jobs and generate a larger tax base benefitting our County programs and services.  This is a win-win for all.
