“This awards program is the perfect opportunity to vote for your favorite businesses, and help promote them to others,” said Gary Herman, Small Business Development Coordinator for the EDC. “This goes hand-in-hand with the EDC’s ‘Buy Local’ campaign as we strive to make our residents more aware of the importance of supporting our local merchants.”
