Oregon’s Small Business Advocate

Oregon scores in the middle of the pack in terms of its business environment. That’s little consolation to a small business owner facing a troubling situation with state government. When every miscommunication with the state can cost your business money, it’s good to know that there’s someone who can step in and help.

What does that kind of help look like and who can get it?

Oregon’s Small Business Advocate, Ruth Miles, will be presenting at the January 20th St. Johns Boosters breakfast meeting and will walk through how she helped one small business and unveil small business data and trends observed in Oregon during 2015.

With 18 years of experience running small businesses to add to her nine years of service in the legislative branch, Ruth Miles understands first-hand the challenges entrepreneurs face. She’s crisscrossed Oregon over the last two years to visit with business leaders and associations, chambers of commerce and community partners to hear their concerns about getting caught in red tape.  And everywhere she goes, she runs with scissors.

The St. Johns Boosters invite you to attend this general membership meeting beginning at 7:15 am at John Street Cafe, 8338 N Lombard.
