The word of the year is gratitude. Last week I concluded 400 days of a wonderful Campaign for the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.
Support of Small Businesses
Fairfax County is funded mainly by property taxes and the revenue we receive from businesses established here. Expanding small businesses bring revenue to the county, relieving our dependency on property taxes. As we grow, we must foster small businesses to complement our high corporate chain presence. Ground level retail in mix-use development can be made more accessible to local ‘mom & pop’s’ businesses by promoting policies and services that facilitate their establishment and growth.
