ESCANABA– Republican State Rep. Beau LaFave was in Escanaba today for a business tour called. ‘Beau’s LaFavorite Jobs’. The politician was at Northern Screenprinting and Embroidery to tour the business and even help with screenprinting some t-shirts.

“I think as a small business there’s always a lot that goes into it and it’s really held together by employees and customers,” said Amanda Marenger, Northern Screenprinting and Embroidery owner. “And when you bring in a politician, they are there to support you and hopefully have your in best case interest down the road when they are down at the capitol and we’re not there to speak for us, that we have faith in someone that can.” 

“Just trying to get in to as many businesses as I can to try to figure out how the economy works here in the U.P.,” said LaFave. “What type of businesses, what type of services we offer and what I can do to make it easier.”

LaFave started the tour six months ago and has visited about 12 businesses. The next ‘LaFavorite’ stop is 51st State Brewing Company in Kingsford.

For businesses interested in being one of his next stops, LaFave says they just need to contact his office.
