This is what I hear most about when I am working throughout the District. In some parts of the 3rd, we are suffering from 11.8% unemployment. Here is what we have to do:
Change the atmosphere to PRO BUSINESS
Reduce Red Tape in TN
Make it easier to do business in TN
Make it easier to do business WITH TN
Streamline the interaction of the government with small businesses.
We need an ADVOCATE in the State Representative Office. This is someone who will promote to everyone they come into contact with the strengths of the 3rd to encourage business relocation into our area. We have three distinct physical locations and quite a diverse workforce available in the 3rd and businesses need to hear about it!
