Oscar believes that the economy is recovering—not growing. As the nation’s economy gains strength, we’ll have to focus on how best to foster sustainable, responsible growth. Oscar will support initiatives that seek to maximize the potential of the Valley. He fully supports the Osgood Corridor Redevelopment Plan which will increase the tax base, create better access to Lawrence Municipal Airport, and provide jobs to our economy.
Oscar believes that we should not wait for economic growth, but rather we should be proactive and create it ourselves. Oscar also supports small business programs for veterans, businesses gaining access to capital, and other incentives to foster economic growth throughout the district.
