Third District candidate Scottie Mayfield addressed a Bank of America small business poll that asked small business owners nationwide what economic concerns they had about their business. The results of the poll showed 75 percent of business owners believe the effectiveness of U.S. government leadership to be of utmost concern.
“I continually hear from small business owners in the Third District who tell me they are fed up with government regulation, which stifles their business,” said Mr.
Mayfield. “This poll echoes what I hear from small business owners who tell me they are excited to have a business leader as a candidate for Congress, with a proven record of creating jobs.”
In conjunction with the poll, Bank of America released a small business report that said business owners believe owning a small business is three times more stressful than raising kids.
“Owning a business should be empowering, not full of stress and hardship,” said Mr. Mayfield.
He said his 40 years of business experience at Mayfield Dairy Farms make him the best candidate to help small business. “You don’t just let anybody work on your car if it stops running, you let a trained mechanic work on it to get it going again,” said Mr. Mayfield. “Because of my business background, I know can help small business get back on track.”
