Bipartisan groupcoming to Kokomo

A bipartisan group of Indiana lawmakers formed to address the needs of small businesses will conduct a town hall meeting Sept. 17 in Kokomo to give them a chance to meet with business owners and discuss what government can do to help their operations grow. No schedule has yet been set for the meeting.

The Indiana General Assembly’s Small Business Caucus was formed earlier this year by legislators interested in improving the climate for the types of businesses that represent more than 97 percent of all employers in the state, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). A small business is defined as one with fewer than 500 employees.

Co-chairs of the caucus are State Reps. Terri J. Austin (D-Anderson) and Tom Dermody (R-LaPorte) and State Sens. Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) and Carlin Yoder (R-Middlebury).

“Establishing a small business caucus has been long overdue and vitally important,” Austin said. “It sends a message that we understand their needs are different from those traditionally associated with economic development in our state, and that a fresh approach is required.”

Kokomo nativenamed clinic director

Victoria L. Crawley, a native of Kokomo, will serve as clinic director at ATI Physical Therapy’s newest clinic in southwest Indianapolis. The new clinic, at 6920 Gatwick Dr., Suite 120, provides physical therapy and sports medicine services.

Crawley graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a Bachelor’s degree in Human Biology and a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy. She received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Regis University in Denver, Colo., and has been published in various academic journals. Crawley has practiced in the outpatient orthopedic realm exclusively, and obtained her certification as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist from the NSCA.
