Holly J. Mitchell knows firsthand how hard, tough and brutal our economic recession has been on working families. Her work with Crystal Stairs has brought her face-to-face with working parents struggling to care for their children while they fight to hang on to their jobs or search for new employment after having been laid off.
Holly knows our local economy may be poised for a rebound, but she also knows that the vast majority of working families in our community continue to be worried about their future.
When Holly is elected to serve the people of the 54th Assembly District, she will make economic and job development her top priority:
Holly supports incentives for businesses seeking to expand and hire new employees.
*Holly will work to attract new companies to our community.
*Holly will place a strong focus on encouraging the growth of "green industries and green jobs' in the 54th Assembly District.
*Holly will work to expanding career education opportunities at our community colleges to help working men and women learn new occupations, trades or professions, so they will be ready for work when the economy rebounds.
*Holly knows the importance of living wage jobs. She will work with federal, state and local leaders -- in government and private sectors -- to create employment opportunities that can sustain a family in today's economy.
*Holly will work with business and labor to create new jobs.
