Mayor Lovely Warren will receive the U.S. Conference of Mayors Partner America 2017 “Small Business Advocate Award” for her efforts and support of small business in the city. All small business owners are welcome to attend.

The award is given by Partner America, a public-private partnership that was created by The US Conference of Mayors to assist mayors in providing the resources and information small businesses need to thrive within their local communities and the global economy.

Along with Mayor Warren, Baye Muhammad Commissioner of Neighborhood and Business Development will discuss local programs and resources available to small business owners.

“We are honored to receive this award, but more importantly to have so many successful small businesses in Rochester,” said Mayor Warren. “They are the heartbeat of our local economy. This will be a great event for small business owners to learn even more about what tools the city and our partners have to help them grow and prosper.”
