AN ECONOMY THAT WORKS FOR ALL
On Day One as Executive, we will move to strengthen our economy by investing in unleashing Oakland County’s entrepreneurial spirit with support for small businesses and entrepreneurs, instead of investing in big corporations that are gaming the system. Our economy has a reputation for strength, but it is leaving far too many people behind, especially women and people of color. Everyone must have equal opportunity for the prosperity Oakland County is known for. Using entrepreneurship as an economic equalizer, we will invest more in support for our entrepreneurs to help them succeed in creating jobs and putting money in the hands of Oakland County residents. We can do it by building out our entrepreneurial ecosystem with small business incubators, launch pads, accelerators, and micro-loans. Let’s help our people, instead of big corporations that are going to do whatever they want, with or without our taxpayer dollars.
