Regionally Speaking: A Conversation with Representatives from NFIB about Inflation and Labor Shortages


Lakeshore Public Radio's Dee Dotson and Tom Maloney host a panel discussion with Holly Wade, NFIB Indiana Director; Neil Samahon, President and CEO Opportunity Enterprises representing NWI small business and Barbara Quandt, NFIB Regional Director covering nine states including Indiana. Each year, NFIB hosts an advocacy event for small business owners: the Washington, D.C. Fly-In. The impact of your personal advocacy during our Fly-In is significant and has resulted in key pro-small business policy victories. As we return to our in-person annual Fly-In, your personal story about your small business needs to be heard by key Members of Congress. Now more than ever, together, we can make a huge impact and carry the Voice of Small Business in Washington, D.C.

Dee Dotson is the host and producer of our radio show/podcast, Regionally Speaking. Dee is responsible for connecting with the northwest Indiana community to share their stories with the Lakeshore Public Media listening audience.
As Vice President of Radio Operations, Tom is responsible for overseeing Lakeshore Public Radio. He oversees the radio station’s programming, as well as news. He was instrumental in bringing several different genres of music to Lakeshore Public Radio.
