NEW PLAN: McClellan Proposes Economic Rebuilding Plan to Invest in Workers, Small Businesses, Address Inequity

Comprehensive economic recovery plan to equitably rebuild from the pandemic

RICHMOND – Today, candidate for governor Senator Jennifer McClellan (D-Richmond) announced her Economic Recovery Plan at C’est Le Vin﹘a small, Black woman owned business in Richmond. McClellan highlighted how communities all across Virginia have been left to fall through the cracks of the Commonwealth’s economic development, especially women and Black and Brown Virginians, worsened by the COVID-19 crisis and the urgent need to center small businesses and workers as Virginia looks to move forwards from the pandemic. 

McClellan detailed her plan to implement a strategy to build back a post-COVID economy that centers workers and small business owners that have suffered the brunt of economic disparities exacerbated by the pandemic with a commitment to investing in Virginia based companies and particularly prioritize stabilizing and growing Virginia’s small, women, and minority owned businesses.  Any incentives for businesses moving to Virginia must pass a litmus test of what’s good for our communities, focusing funds on job creation and community investment under the plan. McClellan’s proposal would collaborate with the Biden-Harris Administration to implement their “Build Back Better” agenda, and implement policies to make Virginia the #1 state for both business and workers.
