A small business roundtable, hosted by former Tulsa Mayor and Oklahoma Commerce Secretary Kathy Taylor, focuses on manufacturers in Tulsa. About a dozen company owners discussed their concerns and how the city might help address them. Larry Mocha is owner of Air Power Systems. He says giving small business a seat at the table when issues affecting them are decided can help regulations stay reasonable without becoming impediments to the industry.
Mocha says if the community can help small businesses be more successful, it will translate to an improved economy in Tulsa.
