PROMOTING SMALL BUSINESS
A vibrant city needs a fresh and visionary outlook in order to remain energetic and a magnet for new jobs and corporate headquarters — things that will help keep our taxes low.
Whenever Carmel lands another corporate headquarters, it’s a huge win. The influx of workers helps boost local businesses and the tax dollars help keep residential property tax rates low.
While it’s important to attract large businesses to Carmel, my heart wil always been with small business owners. I consider them to be the backbone of the community and they give our nationally-recognized commercial corridors their character.
Not only do small businesses help attract new residents, but small businesses see more of their taxdollars go back back into community.
That’s why I’ll always emphasize ways we can promote and protect our small businesses.
I will work to create an environment where not only will our current businesses succeed but we’ll attract new exciting businesses that will make Carmel the envy of Central Indiana.
