Brandon's Solution for Job Growth
As President of the North Fulton Chamber of Commerce, I have had countless conversations with individuals, small business owners, and corporate executives on how to start, grow, and bring new businesses to a local community. The message is loud and clear: lower taxes, less government, and local control. These key changes will make our community the most desirable place in Georgia to start and grow a business.
Lower Taxes - Lowering taxes is essential to job growth. When individuals retain more of their income, they invest that money back into their community. As I mentioned earlier, making Cherokee and North Fulton the most desirable place in Georgia to start and grow a business is paramount to job growth. Specifically, businesses and investors will look towards Cherokee and North Fulton to do business. This business-friendly environment begins with lowering taxes!
Less Government - President Reagan once said, "Man is not free, unless government is limited." The same goes for businesses. If meaningless government regulations tie down businesses, then these businesses are not free to grow or create new jobs! We need to get government out of the way of business growth in order to open up jobs to hard working Americans.
Local Control - Government that governs away from the community is not in touch with the people, businesses, and institutions of the community. Local control is all about making sure the people solving the problems in the community are the one's closest to the problems! This principle might seem elementary but it's a serious factor that, if not considered, can lead to a more powerful government. We need to trust our local leaders to create a business friendly environment for businesses both big and small.
