January 11, 2018  (San Diego) – Local small business leaders have formed a local nonprofit with a mission to unite small business owners in driving policy that improves San Diego’s communities. The organization has launched its new issues-based website featuring its new brand. Business For Good San Diego (previously operates as the San Diego chapter of Main Street Alliance) comprised of local business owners focused on issues unique to this region and led by a board of directors. Its over 200 small business members say that good policy — fundamental principles that guide the region’s governments — intersects with a small business’s bottom line, the livelihood of its employees, and the health of its communities.

“When we use our collective voices to influence San Diego policy, it’s good for the entire county,” says Mikey Knab (photo), director of operations at Ponce’s Mexican Restaurant and chairman of Business For Good’s board of directors. The issue areas that Business For Good has chosen are immigration, government transparency, small business investment, homelessness and environmental health.
