I (own, manage, work at) the (name of business), a small business in the City of San Diego that is currently closed due to COVID-19. So far, we estimate that we have lost (x amount of dollars) due to the closure.
Thank you for recently making $6 million of the City’s current budget available for small businesses. Realizing you and the City Council are facing tough decisions regarding the FY21, I was glad to see the federal government issue $249 million to the City to assist with COVID-related loss and expenses.
The City needs its small businesses to survive, and right now the small businesses like (name of business) need help to do that. Can you please make $100 million of the federal money available as soon as possible so we can survive and thrive together?
Respectfully and appreciatively
Council District 3 – Chris Ward
