We have begun the work to revitalize our local economy with local small businesses, like in the Thornton Shopping Center. Additionally, I worked with other members on council to hire a city staffer focused on protecting and growing our local small businesses and helping us compete with big box top stores.
As more people come to South Thornton to do business, we must ensure that we protect our most valuable resource – our people. South Thornton must be a place where people have the freedom to succeed by making fair wages in their line of work — to support and care for themselves and their families.
That means we must have a local economy that does more than provide a living – but also the freedom to have a career that allows working people in South Thornton the time to take a loved one to the doctor, attend a parent-teacher conference, and retire with dignity.
