Dear Washington: Messages from Main Street on Infrastructure, Part 2

Director, Communications & Strategy

As part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's #LetsGrow campaign, we are visiting entrepreneurs in their hometowns, sitting down with small business owners during their visits to Washington, and listening to America's job creators during roundtables and congressional hearings to hear what they need from Washington to grow their business.

Our objective is simple: we want to find out what barriers are holding back today’s small businesses from growth and what we can do to send Washington lawmakers a clear message. We've heard about an array of issues, but one core message keeps shining through: growing the economy must be our nation’s top priority.

We've already heard from more than 100 small business owners from all across the country, and we will continue to share their messages. Interested in adding your voice? Tell us your message for Washington or share it on Twitter.
