Stuart to Host Roundtable Discussion for Small Business Owners, Community Members

COLLINSVILLE, Ill. - To provide small business owners and other stakeholders an opportunity to discuss issues facing community businesses, state Rep. Katie Stuart, D-Edwardsville, is hosting a Small Business Citizens’ Advisory Committee. The event will be held on Dec. 20th from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce located at 221 N. Main St. in Collinsville.  

“The pandemic has placed new stressors and required our small business to respond to a host of changes over the last two years,” said Stuart. “This advisory committee is an opportunity for stakeholders to talk with me about the issues they face and receive feedback on legislation that has impacted our business community.”

At this event, Stuart will provide an update on her work in Springfield and then facilitate discussion with small business owners and other residents. She regularly hosts advisory committees throughout the year on different topics to provide residents with an opportunity to discuss their thoughts with her on state and local issues.

“Small businesses are the cornerstones of our communities providing unique services, experiences and products to residents,” continued Stuart. “I encourage anyone who owns a small business, is hoping to open a small business, or has ideas on how to help our local businesses to join me in the discussion.”
