Letter to the editor: Economic growth and development
Businesses, both big and small, are responsible for and are perhaps the largest factor to be considered in the promotion and establishment of economic growth and development at the national, state and even local level.
Corporations and companies encourage expansion in jobs and provided services, which, in turn, encourages a good and stable economy and the prosperity of the communities in which the businesses operate with, in, or for. It is for these reasons and concepts that Marshfield as an ever growing community and prosperous city, should adopt a position and advocacy towards not only the advancement progression of such corporations and enterprises but also, and more importantly, the development and establishment of such industries in one’s own community.
This can be achieved and performed in a variety of ways such as lowering interest rates and tax incentives, which, if applied and executed efficiently, can open the door for countless more businesses to invest, enter, and take stock in our town, Hub City.
The decrease of regulation and restrictions on such corporations also helps a town to obtain more and increase the number of business and job opportunities. From quaint downtown shops and restaurants of all cuisine to larger companies such as the Marshfield Health Care system, these various industries of all type and size not only grow and thrive but also form and are created when such conditions listed previously are accepted and supported.
I urge the city of Marshfield to consider these options and the countless possibilities and prospects that these actions would offer to Hub City, furthermore increasing development and industry in our little town.
