According to the Roanoke Times, Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) plans to make workforce development his number one priority.
During a brief stopover in Danville on Tuesday, VA, McAuliffe spoke at a business and community meeting held by the Danville Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce. In his remarks, McAuliffe touted his achievements since taking the governorship, and pledged to work with Virginia to grow jobs, improve education and boost the economy.
“We’re all in this together,” McAuliffe told the economically troubled community.
To boost jobs across the state and especially in economically disadvantaged communities like Danville, McAuliffe promised to make workforce development the “number one priority” for the remainder of his term. He also promised to help improve the state’s education system to attract businesses to the area.
