I will work with local business leaders to develop ways to support Brooklyn Park’s entrepreneurs and small businesses.  It will require a reexamination of regulations that stifle small business growth. The goal will be created a climate for creating jobs by shifting the focus to entrepreneurship, training, and access to capital. The council must nurture small businesses by creating an ecosystem that allows them to grow and thrive. If we have a clear vision for our economy, encourage public and private investment in our city, provide the best support, reduce unnecessary bottlenecks, and offer an unrivaled quality of life, we will succeed in strengthening Brooklyn Park’s economy.
