It's time to protect Home Rule ... from a business point of view

Legislators have been employing a “Father Knows Best” attitude in an attempt to strip local government of its authority. Some believe that “one size fits all” regulation is a benefit to businesses but, from our perspective, nothing could be further from the truth. One of the strengths of private sector contractors is our ability to custom fit solutions to each local jurisdiction’s circumstances.

“Business Watch has added impetus to connections Government Services Group, Inc. (GSG) has with government officials and decision makers throughout the state. We think of Business Watch as an extension of our firm’s professional development and intergovernmental relationships.” - Robert Sheets, CEO, Government Services Group
