El Paso County: Creating Higher Wages for Colorado Residents

In the words of President Calvin Coolidge, "The chief business of America is business." In today's world, it's clear that bureaucracy often takes center stage, especially in regions like our beloved El Paso County. However, I firmly believe that the path to economic prosperity for our community lies in making El Paso County more business-friendly and fostering an environment that can generate high-quality jobs for our residents.

In the words of President Calvin Coolidge, "The chief business of America is business." In today's world, it's clear that bureaucracy often takes center stage, especially in regions like our beloved El Paso County. However, I firmly believe that the path to economic prosperity for our community lies in making El Paso County more business-friendly and fostering an environment that can generate high-quality jobs for our residents.

As a business owner right here in El Paso County, I've personally experienced the challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities that come with running a business. Now, as a County Commissioner candidate, I am wholeheartedly committed to championing local businesses and implementing policies that will directly benefit our community.


Here are some key strategies I plan to employ to create a business-friendly environment in El Paso County:


1. Technological Support for Local Manufacturers:


Our small and medium-sized manufacturers in El Paso County are the backbone of our local economy. I recognize their vital role and plan to offer them the technological support they need to thrive. By facilitating access to cost-effective, high-quality assistance, we can help these manufacturers increase their sales and productivity, leading to the creation of well-paying jobs for our local residents.



2. Personalized Employment Training:


Collaboration is key. I aim to work closely with organizations like Pikes Peak Workforce Development and Pikes Peak State College to provide personalized employment training programs. These customized training initiatives will bridge the gap between individuals seeking employment and businesses in need of skilled workers. This not only benefits job seekers but also ensures that our local businesses have access to a skilled workforce.



3. Attracting New Industries:


Diversifying our local economy is essential for creating more good-paying jobs. That's why I will collaborate with the Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Corporation. Together, we will actively seek to attract new industries to El Paso County. By doing so, we can continue our efforts to secure and expand the presence of institutions like Space Command in our region.

My commitment to supporting local businesses and implementing these strategies is a step in the right direction. As we work together to prioritize our community's needs and interests, we can look forward to a brighter future for El Paso County.
