Manchin Promotes Job Opportunities at Tech Park
South Charleston, W. Va. -- U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) told entrepreneurs that he is committed to creating good-paying new jobs in the state -- especially in partnership with small businesses - in a forum led by U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development John Fernandez and Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va).
“As Governor, I was proud to bring people together to create the Tech Park, both as a public-private partnership to invest in West Virginia’s future and as a promising hub for creating jobs,” Senator Manchin said. “Everywhere I go in our great state, the people tell me that they want to make things again and go to the next level. No one works harder than West Virginians and ventures like the Tech Park will help create jobs and help us achieve that vision.”
Dozens of entrepreneurs joined Senator Manchin, administration officials and other members of the West Virginia congressional delegation to discuss ways to partner with businesses and create jobs. Senator Manchin asked state business leaders to describe their biggest challenges and how to best prepare young people for jobs in the high-tech industry.
The forum capped off the fourth day of Senator Manchin’s “Our Values, Our Priorities” tour, which focused on growing small businesses. This morning, Senator Manchin visited with small business owners and employees in Braxton County, on Main Street in Sutton and Gassaway.
