CARSON CITY, NV - January 26, 2021
Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak joined Lt. Governor Kate Marshall, Nevada State Treasurer Zach Conine, and a group of Nevada’s small business owners for a virtual small business roundtable.
“As you know, one of the priorities I laid out in my 2021 State of the State address concerned continued assistance for Nevada’s small businesses – which account for almost half the jobs in our State,” said Gov. Sisolak. “I am so glad to pull together this group as one more step in this process to provide more support for our vibrant and diverse small business community. Throughout the pandemic, our small businesses have worked hard to meet the unprecedented challenges, and I know it has been anything but easy. I look forward to continue working with them and leaders throughout the State as we continue down the road to recovery and implement Nevada’s Economic Action Plan.”
Participants in the Governor’s roundtable included Trina Jiles, of Gritz Café; Cassandra and Christopher Barcelo, of Empowered Café; Ashley Bradley, of Spoon-a-Bowl; Cody Highsmith, of Villa Dantes and Walter Golshinski, of Smiling With Hope Pizza.
Participants shared their ideas of how Nevada can continue to help small businesses with the Governor, Lt. Governor Kate Marshall, Treasurer Zach Conine and Michael Brown, the Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
