Hagan creates small business advisory committee

U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan has formed a Small Business Advisory Committee. The Greensboro Democrat will look to the group to advise her in developing policy to support the state’s small businesses. Hagan serves on the Senate Small Business Committee.

Her advisory committee will be comprised of 15 to 20 small business owners and advocates in the state.

On Monday, she announced the group’s co-chairs: Oscar Wong, founder and owner of Highland Brewing in Asheville, Andrea Harris, president of the NC Institute of Minority Economic Development, John Cooper, owner of the Mast General Store system, and Paul Wetenhall, president of Ventureprise, a public-private nonprofit that seeks to be a catalyst for entrepreneurial innovation.

“A robust dialogue between the small businesses owners on the ground and the people who craft legislation is crucial to making sure policies in Washington reflect the needs of our small businesses,” Hagan said in a statement. “I am eager to hear from the Advisory Committee about their most pressing needs, and I will be ready to take their advice and policy ideas back to Washington.”
