I am committed to expanding economic development and ensuring that all District 9 residents benefit from this growth. Here are some of my top priorities for achieving this goal:
Sustaining Black Business in Historic Five Points
We will continue to collaborate with businesses in Historic Five Points to ensure that they remain viable and the businesses that recently closed that they have a path back to reopening on the Point.
Herman Malone Fund
Expand the fund to be inclusive of Historic Five Points, even though it is not considered a NEST neighborhood.
Five Points Incubator
Collaborate with entrepreneurs to develop an incubator that provides access to capital, accounting, legal, management and other technical assistance free of charge to Welton Street corridor and Five Points businesses, as well as other small businesses across District 9.
