Connolly promotes economic development as he tours Grove Hall

Connolly spent more than two hours ducking into storefronts in the Grove Hall area Thursday afternoon, embarking on a business tour as his campaign prepared to unveil a series of proposals aimed at assisting small businesses owned by women and people of color.
