Visit Highlights Release of Orman’s Plan to Make Washington Work for Small Business
SHAWNEE, Kan. — Independent U.S. Senate candidate Greg Orman this morning released his five-point plan to put Washington to work for small businesses, and then spent the day in Central Kansas as part of his ongoing mission to meet face-to-face with small business owners across the state and hear their concerns.
“Washington is broken, and nowhere is that more evident than in the challenging environment Congress has created for small businesses,” Orman said. “I want to fix Washington’s broken system so that small businesses have the tools they need to succeed and create even more jobs in communities across Kansas.”
Orman, a successful businessman, knows first-hand about what it takes to build a business and create jobs.
The tour began at a co-working space in Wichita that rents workspace and provides office support for young entrepreneurs – and continued on to a farm in Inman for a roundtable discussion on Kansas agricultural needs with about 50 local farmers and townspeople. Orman also visited a small business in downtown Hutchinson, and an office supply store in Newton.
“After listening to Greg I appreciate his experience in business and his practical approach to problem solving,” said farmer Eugene Goering of Moundridge.
“I appreciate Greg coming to my store,” said Hutchinson small business owner Roberta Avery said. “I believe in voting for the best person for the job and I believe he is it.”
Orman said these kinds of visits across the state have helped him learn a lot about the small business climate in Kansas, and have helped shape his plan to help small businesses grow and succeed.
"While small business owners in Kansas concentrate on making payrolls, solving problems and growing their businesses, politicians in Washington are focused on their partisan political games and it’s working families in Kansas that pay the price,” said Orman. “Small business owners must have the tools they need to succeed and grow jobs in their communities, and that is what I hear from Kansans as I travel the state. I’m running for U.S. Senate to move past the partisan attacks and put Kansans back to work.”
