October Argall Report: Breaking Down Barriers for Business Growth

POTTSVILLE – The October edition of the local TV program hosted by Senator Dave Argall (R-29) features a recent House Majority Policy Committee meeting requested by Representative Tim Twardzik (R-123) focusing on the barriers to starting and growing a business in today’s economy.

“I want to thank Representative Twardzik for calling this meeting in Pottsville,” Senator Argall said. “As a member of the Mrs. T’s Pierogi family business, this is a subject that he is very familiar with.”

The hearing featured local employers including Dave Crouse of 3Cs Family Restaurant, Mike Hammer of Hydro, Julie E. Masser Ballay of Sterman Masser Potato Farms, John Powers of Ash/Tec, Inc., Larry Padora of Padora’s Italian Bakery, and Savas Logothetides of WHEEL Restaurant.   

“Jobs, good jobs, well-paying jobs, that’s what communities and people care about”, Senator Argall continued.

In an effort to provide relief to increased Unemployment Compensation rates, Senator Argall and Representative Twardzik introduced legislation which has started to move through the legislative process.
