Jobs Tour - Talking Green Jobs and Clean Energy in Olympia

Press Release

Denny Heck began Week 4 of his five week "Let's Get to Work" jobs tour Tuesday with a focus on green jobs and creating a clean energy economy.

Tuesday began at Vivala, a clothing and accessories business in Olympia. Vivala's owner, Cheryl Selby, worked with Thurston Energy which performs commercial and residential energy assessments in order to determine the best ways home owners and businesses can reduce their energy consumption and costs. Ultimately Selby hopes she will save enough on energy costs to expand her business.

"Retrofitting our buildings with energy efficient upgrades and products is a key sector of our economy that can expand right now," Heck said. "Not only is this good for our environment, but it will save small businesses and families money while putting people to work in jobs that can't be sent overseas."

Heck will continue his jobs tour Thursday with a visit to Oregon Iron Works in Vancouver, which is creating new green jobs through its highly regarded renewable energy program.
