BUILD A STRONGER LOCAL ECONOMY

BUY LOCAL:

We need to keep our dollars here, circulating in our local economy. For every dollar spent at a local business, 45 cents is reinvested locally. For every dollar spent at a large corporate chain, only 11 cents is reinvested locally.

This applies to government spending as well. Currently the County provides 5 percent preference for local contracting. We would like to see that raised to 10 percent – and it should include spending on food and energy. Contracts awarded to firms outside the County should require a statement on public record that the service is not available in-County.
