Gopal to Host Second Small Business Roundtable Discussion

Following the success of his inaugural Small Business Roundtable Discussion, Senator Vin Gopal will host a second roundtable this month.

The next Small Business Roundtable Discussion will be held on Wednesday, May 30 at 12 p.m. at Freehold Borough Hall, 51 West Main Street, in Freehold. There, the Senator will be joined by NJBIA President Michele Siekerka as the guest speaker.

“Small business owners too often face a web of red tape while negotiating the day-to-day challenges that accompany running a business. As a small business owner myself, I understand the unique challenges people face day-in and day-out,” said Senator Gopal.

“It is important that small businesses have a voice in their community and government. That is why I am empowering small business owners to free themselves from red tape.”

Senator Gopal is hosting his Small Business Roundtable Discussions throughout the month of May -- Small Business Month -- to kick off his latest initiative, Report Red Tape, which is designed to give small business owners a greater voice in their community and government.

Small business owners are encouraged to visit to connect with the Senator directly. There, they can tell Senator Gopal about their business as well as the challenges they have encountered.

“From confusing municipal ordinances to laws that stifle business, local business owners can easily feel overwhelmed while attempting to break free of the gridlock government too often imposes. Through Report Red Tape, Monmouth County’s business owners are encouraged to speak up and discuss the issues they have faced while starting or managing their businesses,” Senator Gopal said.

“With your feedback, my team and I will work to introduce legislation to reduce the gridlock and support local businesses. Once you submit your concerns, we will investigate ways the State can help, work with State Departments on your behalf, or see if the problem needs a legislative solution.”
