SmallGovCon Week in Review: November 28-December 2, 2022

Happy Friday, Readers! December is already here and as we kick off the holiday season, it’s hard to believe that the year is wrapping up already. And speaking of “wrapping” there’s sure to be some of that in the next few weeks. My advice is to pace yourself. The holiday season often feels like we are sprinting, as we try to get it all done and to attend all the holiday festivities. Make sure you slow down enough to really enjoy friends and family. I’ve been enjoying our downtown holiday lights which get better every year, it seems.
