'In every corner of Michigan, from big cities to small towns, small businesses are the heart of our communities,' said Senator Stabenow. 'Roseville is no exception.'
'Senator Stabenow was so engaging with the customers and has a true love for people, that was clear. To have the one-on-one support for a business owner and for her to come see how what she does affects us was really great,' said Jennifer Colombo, Owner of Just Delicious Scones. 'The time she spends to see a small business owner and what they are doing is really valuable, for both parties and you can tell the inspiration is mutual. That connection is hard to find in the political world but that connection is natural for her. She finds true joy in her work, working for us.'
'I got to show Senator Stabenow around the store and show her our history,' said Don Wolanchuk, Owner of Chester Boot Shop. 'It's pretty cool for her to stop by small businesses, I appreciate her support.'
