ON THE ISSUES
JOBS & THE ECONOMY
Government does not create jobs, people do. What government can do is ensure that it has created a climate that is opportune for business and industries to flourish. This means cutting red tape and working with businesses to ensure there are no roadblocks on their way to success. It is also critical that we do what we can to open pathways for diversifying our economy, it is a necessary step in order to increase good paying jobs and help our state’s economy.
