During the district work week, Congressman David Scott is meeting with local business leaders about rebuilding the economy and promoting job growth.
"My top priority is creating jobs - that is why I am spending my district time with local business innovators," said Congressman Scott. "More than one million private sector jobs were created last year. But there is more work to be done. Every effort that comes before Congress must be measured by whether it creates jobs and promotes American innovation."
During the district work period, Congressman Scott will visit with two chambers of commerce and tour three work sites. Congressman Scott will attend annual membership dinners of the Cobb County Chamber of Commerce and the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce. He will also visit with employees at Tyco Distribution Center in Lithia Springs, IBM offices in Smyrna and the Lockheed-Martin facility in Marietta.
Just before the start of the district work period, Congressman Scott participated in a hearing in the Financial Services Committee entitled: "Promoting Economic Recovery and Job Creation: The Road Forward." Congressman Scott is a member of the Committee.
