We are a coalition of small business owners, civic activists, and residents concerned about the lack of economic growth in Annapolis. We are advocating for more business-friendly policies. Our group was founded by Walter Vasquez. You can read his op-ed here

Our local economy is stagnating and city leaders are discouraging investment by enacting prohibitive requirements and red tape. At a time when our city is cutting services, we are tired of seeing businesses turned away. We formed on the idea that Annapolis needs to be open for businesses.
