LUZERNE — State Rep. Aaron Kaufer, R – Kingston, has scheduled his monthly outreach events for September, with two new additions.
Kaufer said a small business advocacy program will make a counselor from Wilkes University Small Business Development Center available to help existing business owners who are residents of the 120th district to grow their business, explore new markets, plan strategically and operate with confidence.
“We started up the new small business outreach event because a lot of businesses on the best side are just small mom and pops,” he said, are “often forgotten by government.”
Also new, Kaufer said, is the career and educational planning outreach event which will provide information about topics such as financial aid and career planning.
Kaufer said he foresees opportunity to assist those who are looking for retraining after job loss as well as younger students and families who have questions about such topics as financial aid and admission processes.
Kaufer said outreach events sponsored by his office provide a good opportunity to seek support in “a private, one-on-one setting.”
