# I will focus on growing and attracting high tech, high value industries. These industries bring high quality jobs which allow opportunities for our skilled and educated young adults: engineers, technicians, IT professionals, managers to name a few.
# I will encourage, support and nourish entrepreneurship by proposing, for example, a tax credit on profits for the first 1-3 years in business and exploring ways to make healthcare affordable and accessible to an entrepreneur during his/her first years.
# I will seek out and support programs and engagement processes that will help our small towns build thriving community development.
