Small business is the backbone of our district’s local economy. They strengthen the economy and help sustain our communities. However, small businesses in HD-54 have struggled 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 small businesses and entrepreneurs to expand our job market and build an economy focused on creating future growth means that tangible changes are coming. Jonathan knows that our infrastructure plan and a focus on small business will bring hundreds of jobs to HD-54. He intends to revitalize jobs in local construction and childcare as well as new sectors like tech. He believes HD-54 will play an important role in securing domestic production and local supply chains. He will harness the educational resources in our district to provide the training and retraining necessary for young people, retiring military, and workers transitioning out of industries of the past to secure these reliable, well-paying, forward-thinking jobs
For too long, the importance of central Texas and the needs of its residents have been overlooked. Now is the time for us to step forward as economic leaders of Texas and the nation. He believes bringing the educational, personnel, technical, and natural resources of HD-54 together is key to bringing Bell County, and all of Texas, into the future.
