Economic Development


As a small business owner, Tom understands the struggles that most small businesses go through. Tom also knows how crucial small businesses are to Lakeview’s continued growth and success. That is why Tom worked hard to get rid of the city’s “Head Tax” on businesses, which required companies to pay a fee for each person that it employed. Tom believes that Chicago is a great place to do business and supports eliminating financial constraints that stall job growth and prevent employers from hiring new workers.
