Spurring Small Business Growth
I strongly support policies that help Americans sustain, grow and start small businesses. Our small businesses are the backbone of our local economy, and are integral to America’s economic recovery.  Yet, without consumer demand, our small businesses will not be able to flourish, which is why a strong middle class is so important.

We must ensure the viability of these businesses. I will continue to fight for access to better credit sources for new and existing companies. I have conducted a series of Small Business Seminars to connect local owners with needed resources to encourage lenders to provide small businesses with the credit necessary to operate, expand, and add jobs.
