Senator Gillibrand Holds Economic Development Roundtable in Cortland
Joins Local Business, Community Leaders to Discuss Supporting, Promoting Local Job Growth
Cortland, N.Y. - U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today joined community and business leaders in Cortland for an economic development roundtable. The group discussed the latest economic development efforts in the region and how they can work together to grow and strengthen the economy for Cortland, and all of New York.
"Creating good-paying jobs and getting our economy turned around is my number one priority," Senator Gillibrand said. "But taking on our challenges can't be done in Washington alone. It's going to take a comprehensive effort from the entire Cortland community. From local community and business leaders, to local officials and everyday families right here in Cortland, we all have a part in getting Cortland, and all of New York back on track."
Participating in today's roundtable with Senator Gillibrand were Cortland Mayor Tom Gallagher, SUNY Cortland President Dr. Erik Bitterbaum, SUNY Cortland Police Chief Steven Dangler and Cortland Police Chief James Nichols, Timothy Rodriguez, a SUNY Cortland student and Americorp volunteer, along with others representing local community and economic development groups, and local legislators.
a working mother of two young children, Senator Gillibrand understands what
families and businesses are up against in these challenging economic times.
That's why she is committed to working closely with local communities and
leaders to reinvigorate local economies, while putting all of New York on a
path for long-term, sustainable economic growth.
Earlier this year, Senator Gillibrand helped pass President Obama's economic recovery plan - which could help save and create more than 215,000 jobs in New York State alone, while laying the foundation for long-term economic strength by making critical investments in infrastructure, renewable energy, health care and education to prepare New York's students for the jobs of the future.
