Alioto-Pier makes small business recognition official

Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier has introduced legislation that would require The City to recognize local small businesses  “that contribute to the vitality of San Francisco.”

The legislation would ensure that each year there is a Small Business Month and one public event, perhaps during a Board of Supervisors meeting, where certain small businesses are honored. Businesses would be selected for public recognition by the mayor, supervisors, members of the Small Business Commission and residents.

“This ordinance is very simple. It establishes in the administrative code an annual process for recognition of leading small businesses,” Alioto-Pier said Thursday during the Board of Supervisors Rules Committee. “This is similar to the ceremonies that we have had honoring women, and that Supervisor Bevan Dufty recently had honoring veterans.”

The committee approved the legislation and sent to the full board for approval.
