STRAIGHT FROM THE SENATE: KEEPING OUR FOCUS ON HOOSIER SMALL BUSINESS

Details SENATOR DAVID LONG

Small businesses have given life to Main Street, grown communities and fueled the U.S. economy for more than two centuries. The nation's 27.5 million small businesses make up nearly half the U.S. GDP and create two-thirds of all new jobs.

VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP: AIDING STORM VICTIMS

Details RICHARD A. STEVENSON

I am so proud of my staff, which has once again stepped up and met the challenges of helping our community during a crisis. Many of us, including me, lost electricity for days after the storm that struck us on Friday, June 29. Even our office was without power after the storm.

VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP: MR. PAGE

Details RICHARD A STEVENSON

I am always thrilled to learn about former clients who have been able to turn their lives around with the help of the programs we offer here at the Wayne Township Trustee's Office. That happened again recently when our Employment Director LeRoy Page went to a dinner at a local church. The free dinner was offered to help those who needed food assistance, and Mr. Page attended to provide information about Wayne Township.

While at the dinner, Mr. Page met a former Wayne Township client, who was...
