What should be the First Priority of the new SBA Administrator?

Cat Clifford of Entrepreneur Magazine asked me this and I am stumped. There will be a number of issues on the plate, but which is the most important?

Encourage the continued streamlining of the SBA 7(a) and 504 lending programs?

Become the national spokesperson touting the correlation between access to capital for Main Street and jobs?

Take a close look at Sequestration and making sure cuts aren’t to core programs?

Be the point person on Obama Administration small biz and health care talking points?
