Santa Fe Recognizes National Small Business Week

 

On behalf of the City of Santa Fe, Mayor Alan Webber has proclaimed May 1-7 “National Small Business Week.”

“Santa Fe is a city of small businesses,” says Mayor Webber. “That’s one of the things that makes us The City Different. We love and support our mom-and-pop shops, the small businesses that are the backbone of our economy. Every week is Small Business Week in Santa Fe!”

Community and Economic Development Department Director Rich Brown says: “The small business sector in Santa Fe has shown great resilience during the pandemic. Many are enjoying a recovery, but many have also suffered setbacks. That’s why we are dedicating funds from the federal ARPA grant and our FY23 Budget to support ‘Jump Start and Get Back on Their Feet’ projects to develop sustainable business plans, engage the local workforce, continually modernize our permitting practices, and spark new business development.”

The Mayor's Proclamation states:

"WHEREAS, America’s strongest economic growth in almost 40 years has been driven by the resilience of our small businesses who, despite a world-wide pandemic, continue to pioneer innovative solutions to our country’s greatest challenges and create opportunities for families and workers; and

WHEREAS, New Mexico is home to 158,844 small businesses, accounting for 99.0% of New Mexico businesses, and there are 343,648 small business employees, which account for 54.4% of New Mexico employees, we must support these local businesses by buying local and small whenever possible; and

WHEREAS, the President of the United States has proclaimed National Small Business Week every year since 1963 to highlight the programs and services available to entrepreneurs through the U.S. Small Business Administration and other government agencies; and

WHEREAS, the City of Santa Fe supports and joins in this national effort to help America’s small businesses do what they do best – grow their business, create jobs, and ensure that our local communities remain as vibrant tomorrow as they are today.
