Yesterday Marty Lamb, Republican candidate for State Representative in the Eighth Middlesex District, announced reforms that he will pursue to help small businesses.
"It is important that the next State Representative have a positive plan on how to help the small business community. We need someone who will not just go along with the Speaker of The House, but rather a small business owner who has the working knowledge to make the difference. That's why I am running," said Lamb. "We need to encourage entrepreneurship.
Lamb released 6 key reforms that he will pursue as the next State Representative. They are as follows:
- Amend the laws governing freelancers and independent contractors so we can encourage entrepreneurship through self-employment
- Require the state to do a cost/benefit analysis of regulations every 5 years
- Pass a 3 year moratorium on new health care mandates
- End the inventory tax
- Allow more options in health care insurance products
- Allow businesses to appeal labor judgments against them
"We need to improve the economic security for our families and seniors while creating more employment opportunity for the next generation. We can do this by helping the small business community. I am the candidate who can help most during these difficult economic times. I know about hard times and pulling yourself up by the bootstrap," said Lamb.
On the other hand, incumbent Carolyn Dykema has a less than stellar record. This year she voted to force home based day care centers to be unionized. According to the National Federation of Independent Business Dykema has a 38% record, which means she votes against helping small businesses 62% of the time.
"My focus will be on our local businesses not the big labor unions from Boston," added Lamb.
