Last week, the Phoenix City Council received some bad news.

“We estimate that 20 to 25% of Phoenix small businesses won’t exist when this pandemic is over,” Phoenix’s Community and Economic Development Director Christine Mackay said.

As KJZZ reported, Mackay told the council last week that the majority of small businesses in the city will not receive enough financial aid to get them through this.

The Show spoke with her more about that dire prediction and what’s on her radar as we begin to talk about reopening the state.
