Two competing politicians were on the same side today, promoting small business.
Steve Bach and Richard Skorman, the two Colorado Springs mayoral candidates were at the grand opening for a new small business. Roosters Men's Grooming Center is a throwback barbershop; it's even got the traditional barber chair.
Both Bach and Skorman say small business is important to the city, "It's another indication that our economy is coming back and that's very import and we also need some positive things to think about here in our city right now, this is very uplifting," said Bach.
Skorman added, "We need to think about small business in Colorado Springs as well as bringing in big business. They are both very important but this is the kind of business that I think will grow jobs faster than anything else we can do."
Roosters is on Garden of the Gods Road between Trinity Brewing and Great Harvest Bread.
