Ward 6 is booming with local, small businesses. Many have opened in the past few years. We now need to ensure that these businesses can continue to thrive. This means more common sense and efficient rules and regulations. We want our business owners growing their business and reaching out to the community. We do not want them spending all of their time filling out paperwork for the District. Government alone cannot solve all of our problems. We therefore need our residents to think outside the box and, through innovation and technology, help fight some of our toughest problems.
