The Innovation Hub

I've been instrumental in helping craft some of the policy for this project via some City Council resolutions. One of these resolutions calls on the administration to explore the creation of a support program that helps cultivate independent contractors that make up close to 40% of our entire work force. The other resolution calls for the exploration of housing options for future workers. Many of our abandoned schools would make ideal shared work living spaces and incubators that can help cultivate and grow small businesses. As your State Senator I would be in a position that will allow me to ensure that this project thrives and helps convert our economy that consist of year round, well paying jobs in the fields of environmental technologies, biotech, ocean and defense technologies and resilience.
