Raimondi stated that the number
of small businesses in Oregon is on
the increase. Oregon has "more
small businesses per capita than
any other state in the union," he
said. "Virtually 100 percent of all
new jobs in Oregon have come
from small businesses, not the
Boeings or Crown Zellerbachs," he
added. "Small business is impor
tant to us as a state." A broad defi
nition of "small business", says
Raimondi, is a business that has
under $5 million in sales and fewer
than 200 employees. Most small
businesses have one to 100 em
ployees. As tribal economic development
specialist, Raimondi will carry out
the goals and objectives established
in the economic development plan
and will guide and direct tribal
members in the development of
their business plan. He is there to
help tribal members already in bus

a new business.
