Tim plans to remove the red tape so small businesses can thrive. From frustrating codes and regulations to struggles with trying to obtain permits, Tim is seeking to remove the obstacles to starting and running a business in Louisville. Existing businesses must be fully supported and new businesses must be encouraged to begin. In order to make sure the community is involved in this influx of investment, Tim plans to make it easier for members of the community to start their own businesses and be the new investment, as opposed to relying on outside investment.
In addition, Louisville’s Black community — and in the West End, in particular — deserves the opportunity to create more jobs and accrue wealth through business ownership. This support and encouragement must come, first and foremost, in the form of funding and financing. Tim will advocate for multimillion-dollar investments into these causes, specifically.
