It’s no secret that Savannah is lacking in the hi-tech and life-sciences areas. There is no reason we can't be the next Raleigh, North Carolina. Charleston became hi-tech hub 6 years ago and passed us by. Don’t forget they have a port, too.
Fostering High Tech
Fostering a high tech hub center can attract more business and start-ups to our area that would logically create thousands of well-paying jobs. By voting me into office, I will fight to put Savannah in line to be the next interconnected city of the south.
We can increase the income and purchasing power of low-wage workers while protecting small businesses, retaining jobs, and fostering economic development. We can use technology to our advantage and look to our own citizens for solutions rather than outsourcing. This is why we have to become more academically diverse and forward thinking.
Last I checked, no appreciable advancements have been formed in the last 14 years.
