Don was featured in an interview for WTTW. Learn where Peloquin stands on issues from governmental spending to job growth in our community and more.
As Don said, “I believe small businesses are the backbone of America and the solution to reviving our economy, and I will work to create a climate of support for these businesses. The American manufacturing era may be over but the age of technology is booming. I will push to provide retraining for our unemployed citizens in areas of technology, and help create job opportunities through innovation: seeking alternative energy sources, recycling and re-using waste streams, and reclaiming vacant industrial sites for such things as vertical farming or as intermodal hubs for shipping.
I am a huge proponent of retraining. We need to get Americans back to work, to offer greater opportunities to the unemployed of all professional and skill levels in emerging areas of growth in our economy: technology and solar, wind and bio-energy.”
