SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY (11-26-11)
DEPARTMENT OF SMALL & LOCAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT & DC MAIN STREETS KICK IT OFF IN A BIG WAY
"Small business is the backbone of the American economy". This has become the slogan that's most often repeated by every politician -- left or right -- from Florida to Washington State.
Starting this Saturday, you'll have an opportunity to vote with your pocketbook, not by contributing to some do-nothing politician's campaign fund, but through your support of local small business, especially those right here in your community.
Here's how you can stimulate the local economy::
