Friday evening the West Linn Chamber of Commerce held a fundraiser auction event. I had the chance to speak with lots of great business owners about their impressions of West Linn and how we could improve the economic climate. The vast majority of our businesses in West Linn are small family owned businesses. We need to support them and make them grow. When we see a dark commercial space around our city, this has a direct impact to our community. This means one more family is struggling to pay their mortgage and they are at risk of losing their home. In addition, when our kids are looking for part-time employment, they will have one less opportunity.
Join me in supporting our local small business and let’s make them succeed once again.
