I will fight to ensure that more and better jobs come to CD-6, an effort that I have continuously pursued. Today new developments in artificial intelligence, automation, information technology, 3-D printing and other areas of innovation are reshaping traditional jobs and have the potential to further change the workplace. We need to better anticipate the work of the future and enable individuals, institutions, private sector participants and governments to maximize the potential capabilities of the workforce. I will specifically encourage small businesses – the source of nearly two out of every three new jobs – to open throughout our District by reducing the time it takes to transform new ideas into companies – a key factor in economic development – and increasing the reach of small business incubators. I started a small business of my own some twenty-five years ago and helped open a new small business incubator in Montgomery County just recently. I understand the processes to start and grow such businesses.
