Sabatina Jr. tours Morrell Park businesses

State Sen. John Sabatina Jr. met with small business owners to address challenges and explore opportunities.

State Sen. John Sabatina Jr. last Friday met with small business owners from Morrell Park.

Sabatina was accompanied by city Department of Commerce director Harold Epps and members of the Greater Northeast Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce.

“It’s not often we have an opportunity to tour independently owned businesses in our communities along with officials from Mayor Kenney’s office,” Sabatina said. “The conversations I had with business owners gave me a better understanding of the challenges that face us in attracting more business opportunities to the Northeast.”

Sabatina visited with owners or Maureen Flowers, Dog Gone Clean, Crown Deli Catering and other businesses located near the Morrell Park Center. He was joined on the tour by state Reps. Mike Driscoll and Ed Neilson.

“We want to do whatever we can to help these business owners succeed. What better way to hear about what is working and what could be done better, than to talk with these hard-working men and women directly,” Sabatina said. “The feedback was invaluable.” ••
