Governor Rick Perry Host Small Business Summit

When small business prospers, Texas prospers. That was the message Texas Governor Rick Perry had on Tuesday for small business owners in Tyler. Governor Perry was the special guest at a small business summit at the Harvey Convention Center. He told the summit, ninty-eight percent of Texas business comes from companies with fifty or fewer workers. Governor Perry said, "I see the State as an asset to help small business owners be able to improve their businesses, whether it's being able to know how to work with state government on the contracting side." The summit also provided small business owners the chance to meet one-on-one with lenders, to help grow their business.
