Beginning our work at the height of a pandemic, our small business community was really hurting. Over this past year, my team and I fought in Congress to extend critical relief, but also assist our entrepreneurs and small business owners directly. There are incredible federal resources available and my team is committed to making them accessible to our district. These businesses make our local community and economy flourish, we must help them through these tough pandemic times and in the long-term.”
