Join Me for a Paycheck Protection Program Webinar for Small Businesses and Non-Profits!
 
Dear Neighbor, I hope your new year is off to a good start and that you are entering 2021 healthy and safe. Before we embarked on the new year, Congress passed another COVID relief package which I was proud to help negotiate through my Problem Solvers Caucus.
