Small Business Interests Pretty Much the Same as Taxpayers in General

This week's Arlington Sun-Gazette reports that "(t)ransportation and tax rates top the issues of concern to Arlington Chamber of Commerce members, according to a new survey, with affordable housing issues trailing." Transportation was a top concern of 66% of respondents followed by the taxes levied on businesses rated the top issue by 64%. Affordable housing was ranked a top concern by 43% of the respondents. We say small businesses because 70% of those who responded to the survey employed fewer than 25 employees with the largest majority employing five or fewer. Responses were received from 161 Chamber members.
