"The amount of red-tape needed to open a new business is staggering, which hinders many from even trying. And that hurts the economy. Reduce unnecessary bureaucratic red tape, offer tax incentives for new startups, assign a County mentor to help someone wanting to start a new business traverse the red tape nightmare, and do so painlessly. It can and should be done to help encourage more small business startups in our area. Mom and Pop shops are great for business!"
