Jonathan knows that small business is the backbone of Killeen’s local economy. Small businesses strengthen the economy and help sustain our community. However, small businesses in District 54 have been struggling under years of disinvestment and a lack of support from representatives. This is why Jonathan believes in expanding and properly utilizing federal CARES Act funding as well as investing in grants for tech companies, and micro businesses. We can diversify our economy while also building up our local entrepreneurs.
Investing in Killeen and the surrounding communities means that tangible changes are coming. Jonathan knows that our infrastructure plan and a focus on small business will bring hundreds of jobs into Killeen. Jonathan intends to revitalize jobs in local construction and childcare as well as new sectors like tech.
