I do not send attachments on this email so if you would like to have the 2008-2009 bank lending report prepared by the SBA Advocate please advise by return email.
The 2009 to 2010 report will be completed in January.
Small Business California is trying to work with the Governors transition team to outline the needs of small business. What in your mind can the new Governor do?
Here are some things we have identified.
Appoint as soon as possible the Small Business Advocate and empower that person to be an important part of economic development policy for the state.
Call for a lenders conference bringing the Governor , SBA Administrator Karen Mills and lenders together to determine how small business loans can be increased.
Incorporate On Bill Financing into the states energy policy.
Set up a hotline for people to call turning in people that are part of the underground economy.
We may get some media calls on this so if you would be willing to talk to the media please let me know.
