Economic Development focus of Second District tour
Second District Congressional candidate, U.S. Army Reservist and former U.S. Attorney Tim Griffin will visit Faulkner, Pulaski and Saline Counties today as part of a tour to see first-hand how the technology industry is impacting the economy of the Second District.
"Technology jobs have provided great economic opportunity to Arkansas and will continue to do so," Griffin said. "Through high-tech jobs, Arkansas workers impact the global marketplace as well as our military. It is something to be proud of, and I look forward to meeting with employers and workers that are making a difference today. "
Griffin will visit facilities in Conway, Little Rock and Alexander.
"The private sector is the only source of sustainable job creation, and only the private sector can lead our state's economic recovery," Griffin added. "I look forward to learning more about the economic impact of technology jobs on the Second District and on local communities in Faulkner, Pulaski and Saline counties," Griffin said.
