My vision has a plan for every neighborhood – North, South, East, and West. The City will offer assistance to small businesses, not just big developers, so that they can grow their businesses and invest in our neighborhood business strips. From Black Rock to Babcock, from Riverside to Parkside, from Hamlin Park to Front Park - under my vision, no neighborhood gets left behind.
I will provide small business with matching grants to help them invest in our neighborhood business districts.
The City will offer small businesses free training in accounting, tax preparation, and marketing to help our neighborhood businesses thrive.
Entrepreneurs and start-ups will have access to business incubators and assistance with creating business plans.
Free GED and job training schools in every part of the city.
