City Council, District 1
I support focusing incentive packages on local businesses and small businesses. I also think with the level of poverty and inequity in Central Texas we cannot close the door on other opportunities. I want to find ways to help people move out of poverty and provide economic advancement opportunities for people at all income levels. I monitor success by the percentage of jobs we are providing to “hard to employ” individuals by comparing it to the percentage of similar jobs that did not receive an incentive. I also monitor success based on the details in an incentive package and whether metrics are being achieved.
