Main Street Matters: Governor Shapiro Visits Lemoyne to Highlight Proposed $25 Million Investment to Create Economic Opportunity for PA Main Streets and Small Businesses

Today, while visiting businesses in Lemoyne, Governor Josh Shapiro joined Representative Patty Kim, and Borough President Gale Gallo to continue his 'Main Street Matters' tour and discuss the pieces of his proposed 2024-25 budget and economic development strategy that will help create economic opportunity for all Pennsylvanians.

In the past week, Governor Shapiro has visited with small business owners across the Commonwealth to hear their stories and learn about what they need from their state government to be successful. The Governor and his Administration worked to address the most pressing challenges small business owners face during his first year in office and continue to build on this progress with his Main Street Matters proposal.

"If we want to attract new businesses to Pennsylvania, support entrepreneurs, and create good paying jobs, then we've got to make sure our communities have healthy, vibrant Main Streets lined with shops and small businesses," said Governor Josh Shapiro. "The number of opportunities we can create for Pennsylvanians is directly tied to the strength of our local businesses and main streets. My budget calls for $25 million for our new Main Street Matters initiative to support small businesses, downtowns, and main streets all across Pennsylvania. These investments are going to make a real difference across the Commonwealth."

Speakers Include:
Gale Gallo, Lemoyne Borough Council President
Representative Patty Kim
Greg Katshir, Co-Owner, West Shore Farmers Market
Governor Josh Shapiro
