Strong business community
Paul understands that without a healthy business community you cannot have a high-quality city.
Bellevue is a city that builds with businesses, not one that actively works to drive them away. The thriving tax base provided by Bellevue businesses is how we can afford a robust public safety infrastructure, beautiful parks, crucial transportation improvements, and more.

Paul supports a thriving business community that will bring in more high quality jobs and workers.
