14 April 2020
FAIRFIELD, Ohio – Mayor Steve Miller of Fairfield launched a new effort on April 1 to help give a boost to the city’s businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a video on Facebook, Mayor Miller announced that over the next two months, he will be profiling local restaurants and stores for a series of videos that he’s calling the “Mayor’s Tour.” Viewers are then invited to participate in a drawing by visiting the profiled businesses themselves, and sending in their receipts.
So far, Mayor Miller has profiled Lindenwald Station, Richards Pizza, La Pinata, Lisa’s Kitchen, and Rick’s Tavern.
Miller said that these small businesses have been staples of the community for years, and that it’s vital for them to continue operating.
“Over the years, they’ve done a lot to help us,” Miller said. “Now, it’s our turn to give back to them and help them when they need us.”
Mayor Miller plans on “rewarding” the highest curbside receipt with dinner after the stay at home order is removed. In order to participate, viewers are asked to go to five of the businesses, practice social distancing, make a purchase at each business, and take pictures of their receipts. Participants are then asked to email all five of the receipt photos to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 31.The person with the largest purchase will be invited to dinner with the Mayor and his wife after the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order is lifted.
