Small Business Member Rory Nay Speaks about Olympia

Rory NayFirst I would like to commend GSI on how well the entire trip was planned and delivered.  From the very beginning things ran on time; everything from buses to the legislative meetings. The Regional Legislative Fly-in included two days filled with the opportunity for business owners, local government, and higher education to be in front of our elected officials.  As a small business member, the issues addressed at the state level directly affect my business.  The trip provided an invaluable opportunity for me to share and speak about the issues that concern my business.  This was also a great time to meet with other community members and make new contacts.  I encourage all business owners to participate in some way – they will realize how government decisions can directly affect them.  Main issues on the agenda for the trip included business climate, transportation, economic development, work force, education and cultural opportunities.   I am looking forward to next years trip!
