Kevin Wilson, owner of Sticky ToGoGo in Richmond, Va., has been involved with Virginia Organizing for about a year and a half now. Kevin is most interested in health care, education, and tax fairness issues.
Kevin got involved with Virginia Organizing after having many conversations with Small Business Organizer Bob Becker. Kevin said, “As I started learning more about the issues, I realized that not only do I have a moral obligation to be involved, but it also makes good business sense.”
Kevin has spoken at rallies, given interviews to media, and went to the White House last July with Virginia Organizing. He was especially excited to meet officials from the White House and has been communicating with one official a few times about issues.
Working with Virginia Organizing, Kevin feels like he has an effect on policy decisions made and that it’s important for small business people to get involved. “The term ‘small business owner’ gets tossed around by politicians a lot, but I think small business owners need to be more active so we can make decisions about what happens in our communities,” said Kevin.
