FARMING & SMALL BUSINESS

When elected, advocating for farmers (and small-business owners) will be a top priority for Michele. By starting with tax breaks, we can create greater opportunities for farmers within Virginia agribusiness and even position some to become part of corporate supply chains. 

Additionally, we should be identifying ways for Virginia farmers to keep up with environmental trends without costing them a fortune or making them obsolete. Green jobs (like solar farms) and agritourism are two areas where HD-64 farmers can claim their slice of the booming Virginia economy.
