MIDLAND - Small business is big business in Texas. That's according to Hope Andrade, our Secretary of State.
She stopped by Midland on Thursday to celebrate the small businesses in the area.
Eight of those businesses were honored and congratulated not only for taking big risks but also for also creating so many jobs.
"Midland is doing exceptional. I just heard there's some great news of how Midland is growing and how businesses are coming to Midland and some of the challenges. Small businesses are the backbone of this economy and they are creating jobs," Andrade said.
Andrade is set to go on a tour of Texas as part of a voter education program.
The last day to register to vote is October ninth.
