Lidl Distribution Center groundbreaking
I have worked to increase economic development in Spotsylvania county and to create an atmosphere where business can thrive. It continues to be a goal of mine to not only have businesses locate here but to stay here and grow.
Over the past four years I have led in the implementation of:
- Creation of the economic development and tourism committee
- In the 2016 budget a set-aside of $250,000 for the EDA and $250,000 for the ED Department
- The overhaul of the business license process online to make it a one stop shop and help to streamline the process.
- Funding the Economic Development Opportunity fund with $2 million dollars to be able to compete for those large business opportunities that come to the county. This decision was directly connected to the county landing the Lidl distribution center.
I will continue to lead the way in growing our local economy through economic development and tourism and will always strive to keep taxes low.
