Comptroller to recognize Small Business Appreciation Week

May 3rd, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Comptroller Peter Franchot will visit small businesses throughout Maryland next week in recognition of Small Business Appreciation Week, which runs from May 5-11.

"From Oakland to Ocean City, small businesses are the beating heart of our state's economy," said Comptroller Franchot. "These companies create jobs, provide necessary services, invest in local communities, drive innovation and generate tax revenues that help fund our schools, roads, law enforcement and so much more."

For more than 50 years, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.
