Secretary of State to host biz relief town hall
Brad Raffensperger

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger will hold a small business relief and resources tele-town hall set for 11 a.m. Tuesday. 

The tele-town hall, hosted through the SheLeads financial literacy program, will provide insight and advice for Georgia small businessmen and women who are struggling during the current economic turmoil. The event is open to all Georgians. 

A select group of business leaders will answer questions about handling financial hardship, discuss the resources available to businesses in need, and have an open conversation about how the COVID-19 crisis is affecting businesses.

“As a small business owner, I am committed to helping Georgia small businesses survive these difficult times and come back stronger,” said Raffensperger. “With the help of our Securities Division, my office will do what we can to provide information about the resources available to all who are affected by COVID-19. We are working hard to equip Georgia’s business community with guidance that may help them weather this storm.”

Confirmed speakers for this free tele-town hall include Business Financial Strategist Marguerite Pressley Davis, DOAS Director of Policy Mary Chapman, and Kabbage Inc. Head of Policy Sam Taussig. The event will be moderated by the host of GPB’s Lawmakers, Donna Lowry.

“Now more than ever, the people of Georgia need additional resources to support their businesses,” said Deputy Secretary of State Jordan Fuchs. “Our administration is proud to host this insightful and educational program.”

The tele-town hall is free and open to all. During the event, the panelists will be covering topics such as: What are key capabilities that you need in your business right now and why?; What are financial strategies that small businesses facing hardship right now can use to get relief?; and What federal and state government programs can provide help to Georgia’s struggling small business owners?
