When Boston builds, we Boom. Hundreds of local construction and building firms need workers who are willing to work hard and learn. I will connect the men and women of our neighborhoods with the companies who can't wait to hire them.
From Cleary Square to Lower Allston, mom-and-pop cafes and small shops are what make our neighborhoods special. They provide jobs, a path to the American Dream for small owners, and they provide the spice and flavor to our unique, diverse neighborhoods. I will SIMPLIFY permitting and regulations, LOWER COSTS for starting up, and SUPPORT our small owners.
I will always respect and represent the priorities and needs of small owners, especially in these times when government mandates and requirements have been inconsistent and sometimes erratic. I will use existing tools and find creative new ways to bring resources to both owners and employees.
They say that the only way to surely fail is not to try. I am a firm believer in dreams and those who dare to try, whether it's a juice bar, a nail salon, or a tech start-up. I will connect business start-ups with mentors and community partners for a leg up in the first crucial months of any business. I will be a resource for owners as they navigate the myriad City departments and regulations along the way. It takes a village to make a village thrive!
Union training and jobs for Boston young women and men. The PATHWAYS Program, funded by a partnership of public and private organizations, is the kind of success story that I will support, promote, and expand, because, as a union member and member of a multi-generational union family, I know that good wages and job security mean prosperity for all workers and neighborhoods.
