Senator Gillibrand Holds Economic Development Roundtable in Elmira
Joins Local Business, Community Leaders to Discuss Supporting, Promoting Local Job Growth
Elmira, N.Y. - U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today joined community and business leaders in Elmira 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 Elmira, 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 Elmira community. From local community and business leaders, to local officials and everyday families right here in Elmira, we all have a part in getting Elmira, and all of New York back on track."
Participating in today's roundtable with Senator Gillibrand were Elmira Mayor John Tonello, Hornell Mayor Shawn Hogan, Joe Hochreiter of the Elmira City School District, along with broad range of representatives of local businesses, community and economic development groups.
As 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.
