I am focusing on saving and creating jobs for our community and promoting economic development.
I know that small businesses create the majority of jobs and I will fight to keep small and medium sized businesses in the District, and I will fight to create and bring businesses into the area. I also will work with banks and others that finance start up businesses and get them to support people in the neighborhood who have a good idea and want to start a business.
I'll also work with business owners to get them to take advantage of some tax incentives that benefit them if they hire a few more employees.
I'll work to direct dollars to social services organizations that work to prepare individuals for the job market.
