MT. LEBANON, Pa. – Linda McMahon said it is important in her role as administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration to hold roundtables with local stakeholders to understand what is and isn’t working in government that impacts those entrepreneurs that drive jobs and commerce in this country.
“I have been to 31 states, talked to over 500 business owners, and visited countless industries, and I want to hear what they have to say. What is benefiting them? What isn’t? How is tax reform impacting them? It really gives me a chance to sit across the table from someone, or visit their business and get a sense of what their needs and challenges are,” she said in an interview with the Washington Examiner before the event.
McMahon was joined by Ivanka Trump, a special assistant to President Trump, her father. They both chatted informally with the attendees before the event that included the owners of Potomac Mineral Group where the event was held, along with three female business owners and a handful of Pennsylvania state legislators, including Rick Saccone, who is running for the special election seat in the 18th Congressional District.
