– To grow the region’s economy in a fiscally responsible manner, Rep. Rob Mercuri (R-Allegheny) established and invited local businesses to join the Wexford Business Roundtable that will serve a vital role in helping to develop pro-small business policies.
The roundtable will also provide a forum for local businesses to come together to help identify opportunities for building a healthier, stronger and more innovative business climate.
“On the heels of a pandemic and the resulting economic crisis, I know this group of experienced businesspeople will provide cross-functional expertise and guidance to increase jobs, reduce red tape, better steward state resources and increase economic recovery,” Mercuri said. “I’m honored to be part of such an exciting opportunity for our area.”
Representatives of The Oven, Burn Boot Camp, Holsinger, RE Broker, Jerry’s Car Wash, ATI, Giant Eagle/Pine, Accipiter Systems, Pittsburgh North Chamber, Soergel’s Orchard, PGT Trucking, Chick-fil-A, Walnut Group and Allegheny Health Network Health Pavilion have agreed to serve on the board of directors of the Wexford Business Roundtable. Their two-year terms will end on Nov. 30, 2022.
“It is my hope that this group will collectively represent many facets of the western Pennsylvania economy and bring local and important business perspectives together so that I may best represent our business community, as well as all residents of the 28th District,” Mercuri said.
Mercuri also supports another pro-jobs, pro-growth initiative. The Commonwealth’s COVID Comeback, which was unveiled this week, is a package of bills that would help to rebuild Pennsylvania economically by incentivizing manufacturers and providing protections to small businesses. It would also offer tax and regulatory reform to bring family-sustaining jobs to the Commonwealth.
