Why Local Business is So Important to Me
Saturday, April 26th, 2014 @ 1:16PM
Small business makes the world go round, and Nevada is no exception. As your next Assmeblyman for District 5, I know how important no new taxes, tax cuts and small business incentives are to our local economy. Just a few statistics I am sure will get your attention:
- 48 cents of every dollar spent at a locally owned retail business goes back into the local community. That’s more than three times the amount that local economies recover from chain retailers — Civic Economics’ 2012 survey of local businesses
- Local businesses have generated 65% of the country’s net new jobs over the past 17 years — US Small Business Administration
Next week I will be releasing my plan to support local businesses, and begin meeting with constituents to show you how my plan can effect their bottom line specifically. Call my office if you are interested in this information! 702.917.7019.
