Commentary: Let’s help #MyBastrop win #smallbusinessrevolution

Have you seen people all over town taking pictures with a black “window frame?” If you use Facebook or Twitter or any of the other social media channels, have you seen posts with #mybastrop and #smallbusinessrevolution? Let me tell you what it’s all about. It’s a really big deal.

It all started a few years ago when Deluxe Corporation started the Small Business Revolution by showcasing 100 small businesses nationwide. Through the process, they realized how badly small businesses are under siege in small towns. That’s when Small Business Revolution – Main Street was born.

Now, Bastrop is in the top ten out of hundreds of nominated cities nationwide. The winning city will receive $500,000 in assistance to our small businesses. It could be a real game changer in helping to stabilize and grow our unique small businesses, and we can all help.

That’s where those hashtags come in. Post on your favorite social media channels with why you love Bastrop, and include #mybastrop and #smallbusinessrevolution. We are close to moving into second place, but we have to keep posting. Ask your friends nation and worldwide to post both now, and after the top five are announced on Feb. 13. Then voting will only be open for seven days.
